I made these placemats for my kids ages ago - they were actually Hanukkah presents!
Of course, I finished stitching them late at night and wrapped them straight away to gift them the very next day.
Since then they've gotten continuous use which has made it really hard to get any decent photos before they got messy again, and again, and again.
And then, I used some scraps of batting and wasn't sure which brand and how far apart I could leave it open. So, already food stained I added some hand quilting (my first attempt at hand quilting!) before throwing them in the wash for the first time.
I have 2 beautiful children and began knitting and sewing to create for them. I have a growing yarn and fabric stash, and not enough time to use them. At the moment, I am mostly sewing, but I can't commit to one thing! I like making quilts, accessories and clothes. I have recently reignited my love of cross-stitch and embroidery.
