Butterfly Tea Towel and Patchwork Placemat
I completed a little embroidery project this week. We took a few days off with the kids over spring break and it's taken me a few more days to get back into routine :) I like the filet crochet border on these tea towels. Nice spring towel.
Today I was inspired to dump out my box of fabric scraps and make something bright and sunny for the dining room table. I love my fabric scraps.
I've been enjoying spring green lately so found as many spring greens as I could along with some pink, blue and yellow. I have a subtle pattern of pink squares in a zig zag type pattern. Don't know if it stands out to anyone else or not. Kind of tinkering with patchwork design.
I just started sewing the pieces together with no plan and no size in mind. I ended up with a placemat size piece that will look nice in the center of my table so I'm happy. I don't have enough of these fabrics to make four placemats (wish I did), but I think I'll make a set with some different fabrics. I like the patchwork placemat look. Have a nice weekend!
