Felt Plate Dividers

I came across this idea purely by accident. I had a plethora of pre-cut felt circles left over from a Vacation Bible School craft. I didn't want to waste them so I was looking for a way to use them. I had traced the pattern from a dinner plate and that's where I got the idea. I decided to use the felt as plate dividers to keep these antique plates from getting damaged.

I simply alternated the felt with the plates and stored them in a drawer in my sideboard.

To make a nice gift for a friend, I cut circles out of a chocolate brown felt and used a blanket stitch in cream thread to edge them. She loved them and still uses them. The circles will also work for bowls. Larger circles can line non-stick pans to keep them from getting scratched.
