I was planning to make a few more so I'll post pictures when I do.  In the meantime though they are just squares of pre-cut felt that I bought from Lincraft (pretty average crafty chain store).  I think they were about AUS$2.50 each.

I pinned them together so there was a bit of an overlap and had a sheet of felt for the backing and just sewed crazy patterns with my sewing machine using topstitching thread on the top.  

It would probably work better if had a. drew a picture of what I wanted the pattern to look like first, b. used some interfacing and c. sewn the pattern on a single layer and then attached the backing sheet afterwards so it looked tidier from the back.

I have handwashed them once using a little bit of woolwash and handling them very gently.  I'm not sure how long they will last - probably depends on the quality of the felt & how often I wash them.  Thanks for the feedback everyone - it's really nice.

The topstitching looks fantastic!  Grin

Great job. I imagine that the felt would be good for anything hot, like bowls of soup.
