A true case of 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' - golly I am reliant on Fritz working & working hard at that! (Fritz is what we call a DSL modem in German, I kid you not!)
Anyway, I am back online & back at my sewing machine after the holidays & have been working on my Feb BIWC sewing class - Placemats!!
This Winter has been unusual for Berlin. We have had hardly any snow & it has been GREY! Grey like the UK grey! And who wants to live in that?!? Today there is a dusting of snow on the ground & the sun is out in full force again. Happy Days!
To brighten up the dull Winter, I decided nice, sunny placemats were just the thing to sew in February, and here is my sample one:
Seeing as Feb 14th is Valentines, what about a placemat with hearts on linen, or monogrammed 'his & hers' ones?
The possibilities are endless, just look at some of the ideas I pinned on my placemats Pinterest Board here
Plastic covered placemats with the binding made of oilcloth would be a good idea for kid's placemats!
I will add a tutorial after the class.
