Here are pictures of my latest sewing project. I had to get my sewing machine back from my mom because I left it there when we were working on Jordan's pants a few weekends ago. I had a lot of fun working on these fun placemats for Jordan's friend, Maddy. They were fairly easy to make, just lots of little steps. It was a nice project I could get done in one sitting. So...here it is:
First I had to cut all the pieces for the placemats and the little pockets for the silverware. I also had enough extra for little napkins.
Then it was off to the ironing board. Ironing is so important in sewing. I've come to realize that lately. I ironed all my pieces. I even did a cool iron-on transfer thing to make the flowers for the pockets. It was cool! I ironed the folded over pieces for the pockets and the napkins which mad sewing them super easy. After I got the placemats put together I went back to sew them once they were turned inside out.
