I LOVE this fabric!
I spent another Friday evening sewing at Modern Domestic with friends. It was great, lots of chatting, lots of sewing. It's really the only time I can get anything done. But I didn't technically get anything DONE. My task was to make a set of 4 placemats and 4 napkins for a Mother's Day gift for my MIL. (I haven't even started anything for my Mom yet.) Well, this was as far as I got. 1 placemat almost done. Oy.
I am just in love with this Matryoshka doll fabric, it's so adorable. I bought 1 yard for this project, but I should have some left over to stash away for something else. I don't usually work with a lot of red, but I am really liking the way this came out. The red is a Kona cotton and the rest is a linen/cotton blend that is just so soft.
Hopefully I have some time this week to work on the rest of these, or start something for my Mom. Does anyone want to come play Nanny?
