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!
