These are for a lady who is getting married. She chose the fabric and gave me the measurements she wanted them made. The place mats are 16.5" x 13" and the napkins 16.5" x 16.5".
This is the first time I've made napkins with mitered corners so was a bit nervous I'd make a terrible mess of them. Normally I don't worry about making mistakes because the fabric is mine and if I make a boo boo I just buy more to replace it. With these there was no second chance. The amount of fabric was just enough to make the napkins and the binding for the place mats.
I'd be pretty nervous serving food with these under my plate but she assured me that the fabric was stain resistant. Apparently it's used by hotels and restaurants.
The napkins were easier than I though would be thanks to a really good tutorial here.
And that's all I've done since I last posted. The lady still wants more things making and has given me a list. Next up are everyday place mats for four. I've already cut them out and am now quilting them so could have another post in a couple of days or so. Maybe sooner if my machine arrives first. LOLL
Last of the creamy white photos. A table for eight.
My table is a bit narrower than most so she should have more space in the center than I do.
