Every Christmas, I try to make a crafty item for my siblings, kids and extended family and this year the item was Dish Mats! I almost gave them all away before taking a picture! My sister got hers yesterday, so now I can blog about it!
Finding fabrics for the kitchen is fun! For one set, I added a 1 1/2″ border of coordinating fabric. You would need a bigger counter for this size. The majority of them where a squared up fat quarter, that fits best on my counter.
The back is a nice terry cloth that has been pre-washed and dried. There are some colors available but I liked the quality of the white so all of mine are white. Later this month, I will post a tutorial on the sewing steps so you can easily make your own!
Hope your New Year is starting off with lots of sewing! I have a quilting retreat in January! It’s three days of non stop sewing, eating and sharing ideas! Rainbows and Calico Things Quilt shop is the host. After we send our college aged daughter off to England tomorrow, I’ll be back at the longarm working on customer quilts, too! And I have a few more quilts from last year to blog about!
Just Keep Stitching!
