I promised to show you the placemat purse...here it is. I think it turned out pretty well. More importantly, it gave me a basis on technique and now the creative ideas can flow. This one was made with two placemats. I'd like to try making the next using only one.
The Fat Quarter Shop has some adorable new kits made with "The Jelly Maker's Cabin" pattern. I just love seeing all of the different possibilities! I'm particularly fond of the "Mother's Cotton Patch" as the colors remind me of Christmas and gingerbread. I guess you could say I have the upcoming holidays on my mind.
