Place mat tutorial

 The Valentine's Day place mats I mentioned last Wednesday are finally finished! I was not sure about the binding and in the end used the colour of the writing. The pink fabric is from Summersville available at Etsy

 So how did I write the quote on the linen fabric and followed the Wit and Whistle tutorial. Here is what you need: 

  • Linen fabric
  • Fabric Marker Pen (Sharpie pen)
  • Letter stencil

I would advise you to put pages underneath...

Here we are.. Simple really. Let me know if you are making one!

It is Wednesday... Just... SO I am linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Placemats are finished, yeah! I can move on to the next quilt - involving shirts and upcycling, more on this next week...


  1. Love the stenciling idea! And yes, you totally should go to Istanbul, and then I'd love to hear all about it!

  2. Hey sweetie!
    I discovered your blog while peeking at others and I am totally hooked by it - beautiful, well organised, interesting...qualities I certainly associate to your character! I would like to invite yhou to visit my blog as well and maybe you'll follow if it pleases you. I'm already following yours!

    wish you the best

  3. I love the Lu Summers fabric, I must treat myself to some. I'm also making a picnic quilt with my old work shirts- won't need them after Tuesday - yipeeeeeeee. It will be good to compare the 2 quilts.

  4. The idea is so nice and I loved the quote you chose: fun and sweet at the same time!

  5. Aahhhh love this!! Such a simple and cute idea :)
