Pretty placemats

On a scale of 1/10, I must say I am over the moon with today’s creation and give myself a near 9! I have made four placemats to add my own touch to our dining table.

Ive been on the hunt for some pretty ones for a while and have only just had the brainwave to make my own. The poppy flower material is a linen Laura Ashley fabric that was amongst one of the gifted stashes given to my by a friend. The boarder is a matchired deep red linen I have added. The reverse IOC the mats are of the same plain red.

I will be honest and say that my edges aren’t necessarily dead straight, but I love them. Especially when they are dressed with the other items on the table sourced from various places, which I knew one day, would somehow all come together.

I guess I need to make some napkins to complete the table ………..

Hope you like them 🙂
