And I’m back!! I have to admit that the first month back, I was in a total lazy mode. I am working my way back into regular life and back into creativity and sewing. Part of the challenge is that it’s no longer just me… I also have a little puppy to keep me busy.
To ease back into it, I’ve decided to make some placemats. Normally, I’m a tablecloth girl. However, tablecloths fall to eye level for the puppy, so they are now safely out of reach until she gets a little older. I’m using the “Lines in the Sand” placemat tutorial from “Handmade by Alissa” http://www.handmadebyalissa.com/placemat-pattern/
This was a great way to break back in to sewing… it hits up fabric selection, piecing, quilting, and binding. I used four different techniques on the four placemats. And, because I bought too much fabric, I still have enough to make six more. The first four are birthday presents for my mom, and the next six will be for me J
