I love these! They're something I would actually make, use and admit I made.

Did you snip off the points to make them all even? What did you use to do that?

This is a really neat project. You got my vote!!!

I'd love to see you work the entire directions (including the weaving steps) into an Instructable!

Those look great!! I've seen the bamboo placemats for sale everywhere, but I agree with the "too high" price tag. These look as good as any others, but pure DIY dollar materials. I love them.

this would be a good personilized gift, or something to make for your self.  and it wouldn't be all that hard... just find the right color to match the decor/plates...  brilliant!

I was just at Target and they had a table runner made just like this! The bamboo pieces were wider, but otherwise, it was woven in the same way. It was in a color that would have coordinated with you placemats very nicely!

Now that I know I can make my own, I see a bamboo skewer table runner in my future Wink With matching placemats, of course Cheesy
