LTRTCWSA - Placemats - 10/5/12

Another episode of -

Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas with Squirrels Allowed - ;))

I played with the placemats again -

Marked my guide line with chalk -

Stitched the binding down -

Trimmed it -

Here you can see how it’s trimmed to about 3/8” past the center rectangle -

I placed the seam in the bottom right corner -
Hopefully it will not be that noticeable -

Used my handy-dandy hair clips to hold the binding in place -

When it’s all done -
It’s pretty close to the size of my other placemats -
And that works for me - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Very Nice! And that backing fabric is so pretty. Are you finishing the binding by hand or machine?

    1. Thanks! I'm finishing the binding by machine. I like to sew it to the back - fold it to the front - and then stitch it down with a decorative stitch - ;))

  2. I wondered the same thing as the other Linda---hand or machine? You are going to have some pretty placemats come holiday season. You or someone else if they are intended as a gift.

    Hooray for almost a finish!


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
