Here is a different version of my Clam shell in burgundy with gold thread. This is my first ITH Coaster ever. While I was fixing a few things on my mermaid shell softie design I decided to create this too. There is heat resistant wadding inside as we have timber furniture.

I made this on my 350e and just realised I forgot to snip some jump threads when I uploaded the pic ;)

Looking good! So is this to be used as a trivet or hot pad, since you used the heat resistant padding? What is this ones size?

Hi toogie, this fits the 4x4 hoop and is just the right size for a hot mug. I am planning on making the placemats soon so I can have a whole table setting which will probably work for a hot pad too

Looks good like the detail and colour.
Funny how you mentioned having to snip jump threads on the 350E, Guess we are getting lazy with the 500E doing it for us.

Nicely done. I see you have found a way to get the symmetry right. I too like to use a design in more ways than one - stuffy, applique, part of a larger design, etc.

Thanks. Yes i used a cirlular layout that looked nothing like a shell for the earliest version and then modified it umpteen times.

Nice work! It is great to develop shapes and ideas you have already spent a lot of time on. I like to find different ways to re-use mine as well!
