As I write this, it is late Saturday night, almost Sunday. I just finished these three placemats. It's just a simple project made from scraps. But the interesting part is, I have not yet made the project from which these scraps derived. Huh??
You see, I made a prototype.. settled on a design.. then had some scraps from the prototype and made them into placemats. (Today I purchased the fabrics for the final project; some are slightly different from these, because some of my originals were no longer available.) I decided to finish these placemats tonight and give them to my friend, Beth, at church tomorrow. By the time I post this on my blog, she will already know she has received placemats. I didn't want to ruin the surprise and post this photo too early.
I started on the final project, but cut my strips the wrong size. Dang! Thank goodness I only cut a few so I have not (yet) ruined a whole project. Better wait on that one 'til I have my whole brain engaged.
Here they are again -- for Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and Daughter Bear
