Here are my Hawaiian Place Mats.
Remember my hubby wanted to buy some for $37.00?
And Remember he had doubts I could make them?
I laid them out on top my tablecloth for the picture (and there's my daughter's birthday gift in the picture too).
Okay - admittedly, I did have to figure out how to make them. But it was easy.
I made a paper pattern - cut all my pieces out (including batting)
I sewed them up, trimming the batting close the the seam and turned them inside out. Then I stitched up the opening and top stitched. Yeah, it was that easy. And fun too!
As I was stitching I was watching my bobbin thread and my spool of thread. I ran out of bobbin, just as I finished sewing, and look how much was left on my top spool.
That's cutting it pretty close isn't it?
The fabrics cost me about $17.00.
So that's how I saved $20.00 - by making them instead of buying pre-made ones.
And just so you know - Lily, my most sweetest little granddaughter turned 1 last month.
She's a cutie!! She's in her birthday tutu. Her Mama makes and sells them.
Also it's Friday Night Sew-in! So now - let's go sew something else!
