After getting in the mail the awesome "bunch of grapes" trivet that my grandma made from a pattern in a ladies magazine in 1955:
I decided to make my own. I used the same idea of making cozies for bottle caps, and sewed them together according to the layout of my grandma's trivet.

Here are the grape trivet twins:
