Fall is in the air.
The season brings with it
the spiders, the cobwebs,
the grasshoppers, the pumpkins,
the crisp mornings and the
quick sunsets that creep up on us
in the evening.
Fall is here and who am I
to try and stop it.
I welcome it with open arms!
I got in the sewing mood and made four quick and easy fall place mats.
I picked out a print and a solid
My beginning measurements were 16" x 12"
You can make them any size you want.
I placed quilt batting underneath the top layer and sewed curly, squiggly lines all around.
They don't have to be quilted. If you want, you can leave out this part.
I pinned the right sides of the two pieces of material (printed one and gold one) together and sewed around the edges. Leave a space about 3 inches un-sewn, so you can turn the place mats. Turn, iron and sew all the way around the border about 1/4" away from the edge.
Here is the finished product.
They will look so nice with my fall colored Fiestaware, don't you think?
I was just getting used to the fall decorations in the stores.
I was just getting in the mood to put out my fall flowers, fall potholders and fall place mats.
We went to the store yesterday and they had their Christmas stuff out!
Boy, am I behind.
