    Default Can't throw away...part 3!!

    Once again I sewed together all the little strips to make "new" fabric: very colorful and no blots and dots will be seen on it so I made place mats out of it!!


    First all the little bits and pieces sewn together to a very long stripe, then I chosed the Lasagne technic to "construct" new fabric!!


    And these are the new place mats!!!


    A closed up!!

    I like this idea--I've been mulling the idea of placemats. This seems like an ideal solution to the problem of spills! Thanks so much for posting! LOVE IT!

    Another great idea for all the strips. They are so pretty. I can never think of all these things.

    You could go really big and make a rug like this. Hmmm, might have to think about that. Really colorful and pretty.
