|This is a set of everyday table linen, comprising 4 placemats, 4 napkins, 8 coasters,1 table centre, 2 serving mats and a bag to hold everything.|
While I hate sewing home décor as it's so time consuming for little result, I'm so tired of the poor quality of purchased table linens. The last two days have been spent cutting and sewing some new linen (it would have been easier and quicker, to just make a tablecloth).
The fabric is a furnishing weight blue/white plaid cotton. It was an end of roll bargain purchased sometime in the '90's from a market stall ( I have several of these rolls - all intended for home décor (rolling eyes!!).
All the items (except the serviettes and bag) are reversible. They are just cut as simple rectangles or squares, bagged out then topstitched. I thought about fussy cutting the check, but decided on more items rather than a lot of waste fabric.
The items were stitched with a universal 90/16 needle.
What more can I say, a simple but laborious task done, yippee!
