Christmas Placemats and Towels

Just in time for Christmas! I finished these cute placemats yesterday! 

I like to practice new techniques with placemats, so I'm not too committed if I don't love it.  With these, I practiced my machine binding.  I sewed the binding onto the back then top-stitched the front.  It turned out nice!

For the design, I tried this 9 patch technique from That girl...That quilt... It was super easy!  The blocks came together very quickly, but for this small project, with only 3 fabrics, it was hard to mix them up.

A few weeks ago, I made these towels.  I bought waffle muslin from Joann and was thrilled with these towels!  I used wonder under and then stitched around the edges.  So.. bad news... the muslin SHRINKS big time when you wash it... so now I have wash rags. LOL  They are still cute though.

That's all for now!  

Merry Christmas, Blogland!
