I finally finished the placemats!!!! I machine sewed the binding on the edges and then brought it around to the back and did a fun little hidden stitch to finish. I'm so glad I can check these off my list!
So if you read previous posts about these placemats you will remember that I did three of them a few years ago. At that time I was lazy, and just wanted to see how Bargello worked. In other words, I did not seem to care about the importance of an IRON. ugh. Look at the difference.
No iron, squiggly and yucky.
(I know I cut the strips straight so I can't blame it on that.)
With an iron! Pretty!
(These two pics are supposed to be the same width strips.)
Learn from my laziness and keep your iron close to you....
