    Fancy cut the stove and little girls, use as inside block and use reds, greens, pinks, whites, etc. around the middle block. GiGi

    You should be able to -- use a different fabric (bright red comes to mind) for the back of the placemats -- then they are reversible....

    Cute fabric!! I think placemats and apron would be cute. Maybe pot holders, if you have any left over.

    1 yard makes 4 place mats then use another color for backs then they will be reversable. That leaves 1 yard ... make a couple of hot pads to set hot dishes on and 4 matching coasters....I love to do the crisscross coasters, think someone showed them on a thread here. Love the material! be sure and share your end project with us !!

    My 1st thought was an apron too. If you already have one, just trace it and allow 5/8" for seams.

    How about a valance for the kitchen window or, if you have a window in the door, a valance for the kitchen door too.
