Last Friday I found myself the proud new owner of a sewing machine, and given that sewing has never been something I have been interested in this was quite an occasion.
Suddenly my head is full with ideas of things to create, however I thought it wise to start off slowly, and these are my first ever creations.
Place mats for a Christmas gift.
Surprising myself, I had no pattern I was simply inspired to buy certain items, plus, I had no idea if how I planned to make them would work, but within three hours had made eight of these just by following my own intuition.
They are double sided, plain black material underneath with wadding in the middle to protect surfaces from hot plates.
I have to say I was very impressed by my inspired project, so much so that all family members and friends shall be given home made gifts from now on......
