This is not my whole scrap stash, of course! These were just the ones I thought would play well in my project. Surprisingly, this selection hardly made a dent in the scrap stash. Scraps reproduce inside those bins. Someone needs to conduct some research into that phenomenon.
I even found scrap strips for the binding.
These placemats were a joy to sew. They were colourful, quick to make, and gave me the satisfaction of making quick progress after working on slower, long term projects.
I love them, though the family is afraid of that white background. No worries. We just use different placemats when we serve spaghetti and sauce!
