I can’t wait to make more now that I’ve finished my first placemats. Last year I didn’t think I could work in this size about 13″x16″. It was the handbags that got me into it. I found making the handbags I’d pay lots of attention to the front and the flap and what showed and what was hidden by the flap. When I got to the back I’d fit the extra material together without the pressure of it being the front. I found when the piece was laid out flat before making it into the bag, I really liked the way it looked. Often I found I liked the back as much as the front, it had the freedom of not being so thought out.
I’m not sure how much the placemats will be, I have no idea how long it takes to make them. I have other work for tomorrow, so on Monday when I resume the placemats I time myself to help figure out the pricing. I’m already contemplating the next color scheme.
