One of my first sewing projects. These were made by cutting strips of fabric, sewing them together, cutting them apart, sewing them together...It was a little traumatic for me, since I'd worked really hard to sew straight lines, and then having to cut it apart. Thanks to the fabric store's crooked cutting of fabric, I was only able to make 5 placemats. There are 6 napkins though, so I'm contemplating making another set to mix and match with. The hot mitt was another first project. Not stellar, but it keeps your hand from getting burned.
