We finally found some sheets with pockets deep enough that the fitted sheet would stay on the bed… only took 5 years. 🙂 That left us with several sets of sheets and while most will given to a good cause, a few will be used to make placemats… and maybe even a rug.
You may remember that I posted last year about these Love and Money Lap Looms. I pulled them out of the closet a while back, cut one of the sheets into 1″ strips and wove some placemats. They are a perfect fit for our supper trays and I love them! They’re very strong and sturdy.
While I had the looms out I also made some coffee rugs (or could be used as hot pads).
I tried different things with the smaller loom. By mixing different colors of fabric a whole new look could be accomplished. The blue is made from wool that just didn’t quite work out while I was trying to spin an art yarn. I have to say… I love these looms!
If you noticed on the photo of the placemats, there is a large piece of fabric left over from the sheet. Here’s the apron made from it. 🙂
I do love it. It fits perfectly and is heavy enough fabric that even grease will not soak through. Love that.. 🙂
If you look in the upper left corner of this photo, you can see where our tiny Katie photo-bombed … lol She and her larger partner in crime Sam are our little loves.. 🙂
Well, summer is well on its way to normal here in North Texas. Hot, hot, hot… and I must get up and around and go water my flowers before the sun gets so hot. Have a wonderful day today .
