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?


  1. I love this placemat.. I had bought fabric to make placemats for my grandmother (I actually bought them yesterday afternoon before the Sewcial) and now I'm rethinking how I'm going to do them.

  2. Yay, glad you like it! I really wasn't sure if I was going to or not, but now I love it. 3 more to go.... That was really fun last night, I want to keep trying to make it there on Fridays - what a screamin deal for 10 bucks.

  3. Love the placemats - and that fabric is awesome. I have yet to make it over to MD but am hoping that will change. Maybe we could share a nanny???
