So I started out with this ...
and these ...
and turned them into these.
What do you think? (They've already been laundered ... hence the wrinkled/puckered appearance.)
And they're even reversible!
I forgot to pick fabrics for the "back" but I lucked out with these stripes that came from the same collection as the gingham.
You know, this pattern is a great introduction to scallops if you've never tried them before.
But you want to know the best thing about these pretty placemats?
They're gonna make my cooking taste better ... and my cooking could use all the help it can get!
Speaking of which, where are the takeout menus? Mama deserves a break after all that sewing! LOL!
Or should that read: The family deserves a break from my cooking?
However you want to spin it ... works out for me. :)
