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!
