Grand Isle


This is my Grand Isle tabletopper pattern.  I love how 
changing colors can really change the look of a pattern.
You could make a different one for each season or holiday.
The one with the pumpkin is made from felted wool and 
the ones with the brighter colors are made with wool felt.

There is a funny story about this pattern.  Our relatives
Pat and Jim had purchased a summer home in Michigan 
in a town that started with the word Grand at the time I
was designing this pattern.  I looked on a map and found
Grand Isle and named the pattern for Pat and Jim's new 
town.  It wasn't until later that I found out they moved to
Grand Haven ~  ooops!  I think I should design another
pattern to honor Grand Haven.
