Eight it is… Tired. Don’t want to make anymore.
Isn’t it tough to keep making the same thing and trying to get them all to match up?
Yep, it is. At some point you are ready to move on to the next project EVEN before you finish up what you have been working on for DAYS!! Now you see why there are so many Works In Progress out there in Crafty Land. WIP’s just sitting waiting for you to circle back to them. Pushed aside from Sheer Boredom. You are probably thinking about some cool new fabric you just bought and want to cut into.
Me? I have Halloween on the brain.
I want to get started working with these.
But FIRST, I need to sew the tops and bottoms together for these eight placemats.
Was going to stop at six but kept thinking that was odd. Odd number. Two sets of 3 each. If you look at the three connected together, looks like something is missing. I think it should be just two or at least four. (BTW, I changed my mind on the how to arrange the pie pieces. I like this arrangement better. The eyes can land on a spot and not get you all silly dizzy.)
So, I made two more. To make two sets of four. Different arrangements.
And I need to get them quilted. No binding. Just edge to edge, turn inside out and quilt.
With the leftover fabric, I am going to make a couple of oven mitts. I have been wanting to try my hand at oven mittens for some time. I have a pattern somewhere around here that I bought. Too lazy to go find it, so I searched on the net. Found lots and lots of patterns. Fabric, yarn, felt. Google “oven mitt” and you will find hundreds.
And after a while, they all start to look the same. Even the directions begin to blend together. BUT… you can make the traditional mitt that looks like you traced your hand or make the puppet style. There’s even one that looks like a “feminine product” (if you get what I mean). Oval shaped that you slip both hands into. Another one I saw was made up as an apron with attached mitts. Like those snow suits for little kids with gloves dangling. I kid you not. For real.
I’m going to go all traditional for my first one. Safe. Here’s what it looks like cut out. I hope I did this right.
More photos in a day or two.
I WANT TO WORK ON MY HALLOWEEN STUFF!! 😀
