This is my attempt today at making place mats for the kitchen table.  The place mat was simple to make, all I did was cut two rectangles out of white muslin vloth and lay one rectangles of cotton batting between them. The edges were tucked under about 1/4 inch and sewn down. The back looks very rough, the next time I’d fold the edges under twice to make the hem. The dots up top aren’t spaced well, but it was my first attempts. Impulsiveness is good in creativity, but I really need to take more time to measure things.

The card is for D’s sister, and is made out of unbleached muslin and brown paper lunch bags that I cut into rectangles and sewed together on the sewing machine. Brown paper sews together very nice.
