Dish Mats

 Making dish mats is such a great joy for me. I really love mixing and matching fabrics and sewing them together all higgly-piggly. So, when the need arose to send a present, I knew just what to make.


This is the first time I've used colored thread and I loved the effect of the teal zig-zags.


This one is more scrappy:



The wrinkle ribbon looked so cute that I didn't fuss with the packaging at all. It's always great when one spectacular detail carries the weight of making something look special.

We love it :) We use it to dry the stuff from the dishwasher that's still hanging on to the wet :D
