LW4150 Maple Leaf Banner
The red maple leaf has been the national symbol of Canada since the beginning of the eighteenth century. Use them as a garland as shown or as coasters.
I love them all but my favorite pattern is the Maple Leaf Cup Cozy. We all enjoy hot beverage on a cold day and these make a great cozy to keep a favorite beverage warm.
A dear friend just finished making a dozen to gift to her ‘hockey mom’ friends that watch many hours of hockey practices and games. Next on her list are the mittens and hats.
My hands will be busy making the maple leaf scrubby as a stocking stuffer this year for the entire family. I will even add in maple syrup to make the perfect gift. They are loved by all that receive them for their unique scrubbiness.
We welcome you to pick your favorites and celebrate Canada’s 150th all year long!
