I am making Christmas placemats. I bought beautiful red/green tartan plaid with gold glitter thread in it.
Any suggestions on a pattern? I was thinking in the shape of a present...but can't figure how the bow would be. I thought just make borders of red (red will look better with it than green and I did buy some red with gold stars throughout it which looks great) But I wanted something a bit more than just a square. I don't like working with vertical/horizontal strips/lines..as you have to be so careful to keep them straight..one crooked line and the whole thing is a mess and for that same reason I dont' want to cut to many squares!
Any suggestions? I have a cute snowman print for the back so I can flip them back and forth...one for the kids theme and one for more mature theme
