... thank god for alliteration!!


so anyway. i found this placemat on the clearance rack for $1. i like the fact that it's made out of pink suede, and all the neat little seam lines running across it. plus, it's a placemat, so i didn't have to use interfacing  Grin. all fabric and notions came from massive stash, so total cost = $1.00.

sorry the pictures are huge!


front:


show me yo' boxed corners:


lining. wow. that lining application looks awful. i swear it's not that wonky in non-picture existence.



the end!

Really nice color combination.  It looks like a big bag.  Usually the bags I've made out of placemats come out small.  What size is yours?

thanks for the positive responses!


the placemat came from walmart, on the clearance aisle. it was the only one left, else i would have taken as many as i could hold Smiley

the finished product is a little bigger than what i normally carry (i like my purses itty-bitty); it's approximately 10 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 6 inches tall. it's actually pretty roomy; i can cram all kinds of junk in there.
