Apron and Placemats

Remember a while ago I posted about my apron and mentioned that I'd made another as a gift? I'm pretty sure they've reached Portland by now, so here are the pictures!

I used the scraps from the apron as well as a little solid brown from the stash to make two placemats, too. It was my first try at making a scrappy binding. I love how it turned out, although next time I think I'll try joining the binding strips at a 45 degree angle like you do for same fabric binding. These 90 degree joints were pretty bulky for the hand sewing.

Happy Belated Birthday, Mrs. Harding!
