Here is a large square mat I made for the center of my table. I made this as a practice piece to get back into sewing again after I bought myself a sewing machine. When my mom asked that I make her placemats for her new home. I knew I better practice before I hacked away at the fabric she spent a bunch of money on!!
This is my first project in years!! I started sewing when I was 7 and stopped around age 12. Now at 26 I am at it again!
Please ignore my uneven outside edges :oops:
I sure wish you could really see the fabric. It is so pretty!! The stripes have fine gold stripes in it, and the flower fabric has some gold too. It makes the fabric so pretty with the little touch of sparkle! The flower box has now been replace with a dark brown leaf shaped candle holder that holds three flameless pillar candles that I got from my mom. The candle holder and candles look lovely on it. I guess I should have taken a picture of that!!! :D
