Christmas Place Mats
Christmas is right around the corner - in fact exactly 1 month from today. I know there is always those last minute things that need to be done so I wanted to share with you, one of my last minute creations. With dinner parties and Christmas gatherings happening all through December I felt I should dress up my table a little for the occasion.
Of course, I don't do anything by half. With such a short season why not extend their usefulness by creating another design or theme on the other side. Double sided place mats, why not? Christmas on one side and Easter or Fall or Thanksgiving or even birthday celebrations! You can really do anything by just using fabrics for the occasions. They are quick and easy. I had mine made in no time at all. There is no hand stitching the binding on these and my technique looks great on both sides.
I added Autumn tones to make a Fall setting on one side.
With Christmas is on the other side.
Here is my Christmas place setting.
and here is how the table looks.
I'd better get to and make another couple for a six place setting!
