I have been working on odds and ends today, and have made a little more progress on the placemats for my savy seasons partner. I had someone ask about how I made the trees, and I will try my best to do a little tutorial soon. I just didn't really take any pictures when I was doing them, so it may take me a few days. That being said, I should give credit where credit is due!! I did use the idea from the little forest quilt over at the purl bee (although my sizes are a little different, it's the exact same concept so they deserve the credit!).
At this point I can't decide what fabric to use for the back. At first, I was going to use a fun Christmas fabric, but now I am leaning towards more of the Essex Linen that I used on the front. I am going to sleep on it for a few days. The deciding factor may end up being if I have enough of the Essex Linen for the backs of 4 placemats.
I also worked a little on a "mini" Christmas tree skirt. I got this tutorial over at the Moda bakeshop. It ended up a lot bigger than I thought it would, but hopefully it will still work. I am having sooo much fun making these Christmas items for my partner.
I would love to give a HUGE thank you to Ruth at Sew Love Fabrics, and also Rachel at Stiched in Color, where I won this awesome 1/2 yard bundle of Christmas fabrics.
See you soon ...
