Shoddy Seamstress Adventures: Placemats Part 3.2

Other stuff too. I mentioned in my last post that I found 6 placemats that I started a long time ago. I used quilting cotton on both sides and iron interface batting in the center.

I just don’t want to take responsibility for being absent. I stash busted a C2C baby blanket for my spouse’s niece. Who is dueContinue reading “Year of Projects: Weeks 30/31”
