These placemats kept me busy today, but they're still not all finished. Getting there, though. By the way, this is not an original idea, and please forgive me, but I can't remember whose blog had it listed. I commented on her post about it and she sent me the measurements she used to make them. Unfortunately, in my efforts to keep my email cleaned up, I have already deleted the email. I am so sorry I can't remember who it was. Anyway, here is one complete, front and back. I have 5 put together to the point of hand sewing the binding. I decided not to leave the back completely plain, but I also didn't want to add a lot of extra work to the project. So, whaddya think? And no, the side strips aren't purple, but red, and the black squares are actually brown. I just couldn't get the color to show up properly
Happy Birthday My Little Darling!
