place mat to go

i jut had to take this project on..... it was the perfect gift for a friend of mine. she likes to cook and picnic, often fancy. she definitely had to get this place mat.
i found it in lotta's simple sewing book and immediately caught my eye.
it was a quick and fun project and i used some fun cotton for the outside, which i purchased a few months ago, when i was buying fabric for naomi's quilt. for the inside i used some old linen, not antique but used. the fabric was used for curtains in our living room. the curtains were basically stripes hung on a rod and covered the lower half of the window. now we have knitted curtain, inherited from my mother in law, more about that in a later post i guess....
