This trivet DIY, developed in collaboration with Brit + Co is a great beginner’s project for those who want to take a stab at stitching and weaving. 

What you need


What you need

  • 1 yard jersey-knit cotton
  • Cotton embroidery thread
  • Sewing needle with a large eye
  • Fabric scissors
  • Measuring tape (optional)

Let's Get Started

Step 1

Gather your materials. 

Step 2

Cut the yard of fabric into one gigantic two-inch wide strip by creating a zig-zag pattern. Then stretch the jersey so the ends roll in.

Step 3

Tightly roll one end of the jersey strip in, then secure with two perpendicular stitches.

Step 4

Make two more layers around this base with the jersey. Randomly stitch around these layers to fasten in place, making sure that you catch a bit of the base fabric with each one.

Step 5

When you’ve stitched around the entire layer, add two more layers of fabric strips and repeat. If you like, switch embroidery thread colors for an ombré look.

Step 6

To secure the end in place, make a few stitches close together at the tail of the jersey strip, then tie it off.
