I made some place-mats to go with my Hot Mama Apron. I sooooooooo don't want to give them up. I am now on the hunt for another panel so I can have a set all my own!! I think they turned out fab!!
Here they are, in all their almost finished glory.
The Lady with the Red and Black polka dot hat is my favorite.
Welllllll, maybe the zebra print...I love them all!
The backs...two red and two stripe.
The border is actually a black and white print of different types of glasses.
It really makes the place-mats pop!
I took the opportunity to practice my free motion skills. They are far from award winning, but getting better all the time.
I really needed to make the binding 2" instead of 3" so I could've machine sewn it. Alas, I had to hand sew it all down. My needle pushing finger is s-o-r-e.
I hope my swapee likes them as much as I do!!
