Shaped Placemats



Some time ago, okay, YEARS ago, I had an idea that I wanted to make shaped placemats for each major holiday in each month.   I started just around St. Patrick’s Day so a clover was the obvious choice. 

I dove right into this project.  I drew a heart, photocopied it, enlarged it, and put three of them together to make a pattern for a clover with three leaves.  I bought cord and seam binding to make my own piping.  I took the time to make sure the piping edge was still visible in all the corners as I was pinning.  I even added matting to give it some uumph.  

I made the first one, then proceeded to lose interest in the whole project idea.  It’s been on the bottom of my unfinished project basket since forever and I think it’s now time to move it to its new home: the trash.
