About a year ago I made this "very much loved" table runner with my favourite Japanese fabric. I always meant to make some place mats, and even got the fabric required. (Which promptly found a nice comfortable resting place in my sewing room, patiently waiting to be made into something!)
12 months on, I have begun to make the place mats. One is finished, and the others well on the way . . . however, they do show up the old runner. The question is, do I have enough fabric left to make another runner, or should I just leave it. I thought the runner was pretty good, until the place mats arrived. I even put the runner through the wash, yet again,
but love and time have aged it.
Young Peter is delighted as this is how much bigger they are than our old place mats, and it was his idea to make matching mats.
I couldn't get the same binding, but I got a pretty good match.
