Hot Latte’ Place Mats



   This is a posting devoted to some really cool fabrics I bought at our Sewing Expo Show. I seldom buy much fabric unless it is something I consider to be quite impressive.   I bought a whole panel of this quilt fabric for just $3.75.   Let me show you some of the design squares before I show what I made from them.


    I bought the fabric to make kitchen items for my daughters first home.   Her entire kitchen is done in a coffee theme.   And has the feel of a true espresso café. She has many different patterns in her kitchen but all keep with a same color scheme. I used my panel of fabric to create Place mats and kitchen towels to add to her collection.   I had never made placemats before but they were very easy.   Here is my first attempt.


  And here are some more…..


  I wanted to use as much of the fabric as possible to carry the theme, and when I couldn’t make another placemat I finished up with coffee towels.   She has a good sized collection of all kinds of kitchen towels but none like the ones I’ll be posting tomorrow.   Have a great week, with love from The Victorian Rabbit.
