Spicy Hot Mats

Here are some of the Spicy Hot Mats the students made who come to Crafts @the Library. It was a lovely scented time! not much individuality, but they all enjoyed making them. We had some new people this time.
These are made so you can place a hot dish on them at the table. The heat from the dish releases the scent of the cloves and cinnamon sticks. The rice absorbs the heat. There is a separate sachet inside with the rice and spices mixture. That way the cover can be removed if it needs washing.
I finished off the rest of the loosely woven linen and made 2 when I got home. I will put them in the Christmas gift pile.
