I received a super set of placemats from mandys_momma today!

Here is a photo of the whole set:


and then a closeup of one of the placemats to show details:


They are all handwoven? in yarn and ribbons on the front, with fabric backing. How cool is that?

Thanks, mandys_momma!  Smiley

I'm so happy you like them!
Yes, they're handwoven..hence the unevenness of them.  Tongue

I had fun making them. Perhaps I'll try making myself a set.

Sent to my parnter Craftycakelady,and am posting pics for her, she is really busy and her camera is having issues.
Below you will see a set of 4 placemats. Each one was machine embroidered with a gold metalic thread around each of the flowers and a border was created at the edges.

Nice placemats, Purple.
I really like that fabric...I saw something like that at Joann's recently.
Neat how you sewed around the flower edges!

IsikkahJai, I had a brillian idea (if I do say so myself) for your placemats as I was waking up this morning.  Now to make them a reality.  Not going to be too difficult since I haven't gotten any further than just pulling your fabric.  Sometimes I stall until I'm hit with inspiration.  It was definately a great way to start off my morning.
