quilted placemats

quilted placemats 227All through December I sewed and knitted and crocheted a handful of gifts for friends and family in secret. I was so excited to finally get to share some of my creations once the holidays had past. Of course I was so excited to send many of them off, I forgot to take photos. Oops. I did remember to snap some photos of these quilted place mats I made before they were wrapped up.

    oh!! I love these. I’m always looking for round placemats that can be easily washed, with no luck. I never thought to make my own! Thanks for sharing!!

    I do the same thing when I make stuff – send it off without taking pictures! The placemats are really cute. That’s a good idea for future gifts.
