Framed Beer Holders

I have over 100 foam rubber beer holders collected when travelling.
Always wanted to do something with them, some of them anyway.
So I framed a few to hang above the bar.
The worst part was to flatten them out and stitch them together .
But it’s only a memory now so who cares.
Here’s what they looked like before if you are not familiar with beer holders ( an Aussie essential).

.
Thanks for looking.

AS I make bottle openers )Toy Cars -that do that—others also—)—I understand the expense and hard work for the research and development of your unique and challenging project!

Nicely done and keep up the R & D!
