but the sewing itself is not too bad.
Since I had a bundle of fat quarters in most of the color ways,
I made each placemat a different color, but pretty much the same print.
I chose a white linen /cotton fabric to balance of the colors.
The rickrack is also different for each one of them.
I think they look quite cute all together.
I did not do a binding, I felt it would have make it too busy.
The back is a red and white picnic print, perfect in case people are scared to eat on the white side!
They are the perfect touch of color in the coldness of the Scandinavian North!
They are really beautiful, and perfect with the plates in the last picture :-). I love the pepper coasters too, your choice of fabrics and colour is great.ReplyDelete
Thank you J.J., it was a fun project! The only complaint I heard so far is that it is going to be hard to keep clean....!Delete
These are so pretty! I love all of the adorable prints! Especially the cakes and strawberries! The colours are adorable! Good work! I just love the picture with the pretty blue plates. So cute! :)ReplyDelete
