This is the final post about the sewing I did for my recent trip to Montserrat – a set of 8 embroidered placemats for my lovely sister-in-law Kristina.
For each set of fabrics the floral print was the front, the two-tone almost solid fabric was the back and the polka dot fabric was for 2 different bindings. In total there would be 4 different fabric combinations on the placemats (each floral print w/ 2 different bindings).
When I told my husband about my idea for these he loved it and suggested that I
embroider their names on the placemats (including one with Einstein the
dog’s name on it). At first I was skeptical. I didn’t know if i could
do it, I didn’t know if they would like it, but I decided to try it and I
am so glad that I did.
