Every month I try to do something at least a little bit creative, just to keep myself sane.
This past month, I decided to pull out my Amy Butler sewing book, In Stitches, and attack her placemats project. You see, when I have people over for dinner, I only actually have two matching placemats of any kind so couldn’t use any when there were more than two people here, unless I want to use all mismatching placemats for everyone, which would look kind of funny. So I was determined to make a set of four pretty placemats!
And I don’t really have much to say about this topic, except Shannon wanted me to post pictures. So here they are:
Also, this video is really good for learning how to slip stitch, which I have finally mastered. (It’s always been a horrible mess before now, but the stitches this time around are actually invisible on two of the placemats! Go me!)
