Instructions: Cut 3 layers of terry cloth (meaning old towels) the exact shape of the pressed wood circle. Now cut your decorator fabric about 2 inches larger than the terry cloth all the way around. Stitch a line around the outside edge of your decorator fabric with your needle tension tightened. This causes the decorator fabric to naturally curl. Place 3 layers of toweling on pressed wood disc. Now press under 1/2" on decorator fabric and stitch. Draw elastic or cord through the casing and pull up until it is snug on the back of the wood. Tie cord or stitch ends of elastic together securely. It's as simple as that. Place your hot casserole dish on this the next time you serve dinner. Co-ordinate your fabrics with the rest of your kitchen and you have an attractive, useful item.
