Its going to be a very frugal Christmas for me and my elderly pensioner parents. I just had to buy a new car battery and the South African government just started tolling the highway that I have to take to work. So I am broke. So now my poor parents are getting homemade gifts this festive season. I decided to make my mother placemats.
I used the ruffled placemat tutorial from www.sew-it-love-it.com. I don't like ruffles and I didnt have enough fabric to make bias binding so I used ribbon over the seam between the main fabric and the contrast fabric instead. As usual the fabric and ribbons come from my stash.
I hope she likes it and that it isn't too tacky and cheap looking.
If anyone actually reads my blog pls leave a comment...it would be so awesome to hear from you!
