This is our kitchen table, now complete with handmade placemats. Do you remember this fabric? Oh, I only bought it last year. *sigh* Anyway, the floral mats are for me and #1 Girl, while the dotty ones are for the boys, ages 7 to 42. Different prints, but with coordinating colors.
As you can see, the mats are reversible.
Whoops, suddenly I'm hearing a rendition of Sesame Street's "One of These Things Is Not Like the Others"!
See that mat there, with the stripes going vertically instead of horizontally like everyone else? Seems I wasn't paying attention when it came time to cut that backing. I did have enough fabric to cut another back the right way so that all would have horizontal stripes, but in the end, I was okay with the matchy-unmatchy of the set.
After all, I'm not perfect and neither are my projects.
And don't worry, much as I love my sewing machine, I still love yarn, so I'm back to knitting today. Have a lovely day, all!
