After I wrote the tutorial for the patchwork placemats that I made my kids for last Easter, I came up with the idea to add a pocket for the napkin. So instead of doing two more rows of patchwork I instead replaced them with a solid piece of linen and made another half piece for the pocket. Perfect way to store the napkin! I wish I had made my kid's this way, as their napkins are always going astray!
I made this placemat a few months ago but have been saving it for my little niece's birthday. Of course, being the procrastinating gift giver I only just now got around to embroidering her name on. Luckily, she is only two and won't mind a tardy present. (I hope!)
Do you ever take pictures of the things you make and think it really isn't that wrinkly? So annoying. :0)
For the back I used this pretty Meadowsweet print that I actually used for a dress that I made for her last birthday! That fabric just keeps going. ;0)
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!
