Autumn Leaves Hotpads

And Fridge Magnets.  The leaves are actually a Fridge Magnet pattern that Gran sent me in an RAOK last summer. :D  I had been wanting to make an Autumn Leaf Hotpad forever. I finally got around to it. I used the Mielke's Farm Double-thick Diagonally Crocheted Potholder pattern. And Red Heart Super Saver, "Fall". And gold, and "Carrot".  I got some kitchen towels at Walmart to go with these, they will be for gifts. I want to make myself a set, too. :D    I don't know if you could use these leaves, maybe. Here is a Solstice Oak Leaf that is available as a Free Ravelry Download. I love that one. Some Felted Leaf Coasters, from the Lion Brand site.. Oak and Elm Leaf Appliques. A Maple Leaf. A Canadian Maple Leaf.  Autumn Leaves.

Thank you, Mimi. :) The color of the gold leaf reminds me of the tunic you are crocheting your SIL. :)
