Making placemats has been on my to do list for a while! The final straw came the other night when we had to get the emergency placemat out - the tea towel! Luckily their close friends but still, oh dear - we did have a fourth...think I ruined it with glue. Well actually forget the 'I think'...I did. Oops. So I seized the moment, well a day or two later and researched placemat tutorials. I found this one http://www.sew4home.com/projects/table-linens/citrus-holiday-fussy-cut-placemats
Which was really easy to follow and I made these birdy placemats which I love.
So if you ever have to bust out emergency tea towels or just fancy making something pretty I highly recommend this tutorial.
