But for now, I wanted to share a little project I did this afternoon in preparation for a trip I'll be making this weekend. I'll be doing a little audition tour, and I am staying with a few different friends in a few different cities. Not wanting to show up empty-handed (but also not wanting to give up a ton of time to complicated, overly-ambitious projects) I've been working on a few little gift items to take with me. So here is Nifty Gifty #1 (out of 3) and it is: a set of 4 place mats!
When I went to the fabric store earlier today, I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do. But once I found this beautiful batik cotton I decided to go with a simple design. I just love the swirls of color...I couldn't stand to cover those up! I used a plain grey cotton on the flip side, and just added a little gold and blue trim (you know, to make it fancy.)
I'll be back tomorrow with Nifty Gifties #2 and #3, and then I'll be all ready for my trip! Hope everyone had a happy Monday!
