Placemats

Just before we moved into our new place we bought a new dinning table. I am in love, even Ruby knows to be careful with the table. I decided to make some placemats, but I didn't want them too big, just big enough for a plate and knife and fork.
The project took longer than usual as I wasn't convinced with my fabric choices, but I had cut them out and decided to just make them anyway. I like them now they are put together and they aren't too big and don't take up too much room. I have made 6 but I ran out of bias binding.

One thing I am glad of is that I rounded the corners. 

They look nice on my new table.
Here is my table, this was taken at Christmas which is why there are decorations in the background. It was funny buying the table as I haven't bought a big item of furniture since forever. It fits lots of people around it and I think my miss match of chairs go well with it too. I have to say it doesn't look this tidy all the time.
