New placemats

New placemats 

I've been needing new placemats for ages. The kind you can chuck in the washing machine, not have to wipe down all the time! So I dug into my stash and found this ikea remnant I'd bought ages ago. Just enough to make 4 mats. It's a home deco weight so I didn't interface or pad. I just used calico on the back. AJ wants to make one himself so that's our first school holiday project. I'm aiming to make more that are double sided. Great stash busting project. Fabric was cut 14.5"X11.5" and used 1/2" seam allowance. 

Testing them out!!

Think I deserved a wine :-).

Pencil case

Dino pencilcase

Last weekend Little O had a birthday party to go to. I didn't know the child. Too many kids to keep track of at kinder! Lucky for me it was a dinosaur theme. So, I figure he likes dinosaurs :-). I was really not in the mood to rome the shops searching for a gift. I was in the mood to sew. So I dug out some dino fabric and made a pencil case. Love a gift that lets me get some sewing time :-).
