December 2016 saw Natalie and Niamh’s first birthday. I wanted to make them something useful, and in my local supermarket I found some nice quality plastic cutlery. So I thought I would make them a placemat each.
I trawled through Pinterest but found the idea for the mats in an advert for the book “Quilt Petite” by Sedef Imer. I didn’t think for a moment that I would get the book for Christmas (but I did). However I made the mats using a regular placemat as a template and really just making it up as I went along.
