Custom reversible placemat set

Custom reversible placemat set

Oops I did it again! 

A customer saw a Burp & Bassinet Cloth I'd made in a lovely batik fabric and asked me to make a set of placemats for her sister as a gift. 

This is the second time now this customer has seen some fabric which I have only had a short run of.  I had only picked up a couple of Fat Quarters of that fabric to make a couple of Burp Cloths and couldn't source any more.  Typically once fabrics start to get cut up into Fat Quarters that indicates the end of the run of that print.

Not to be deterred, we worked together and I sourced some alternative (and just as beautiful fabric) to create a unique set of 5 reversible placemats.  

The red dot batik cotton fabric is designed in Australia and hand printed in Indonesia from another small local business in Australia (Batik Fabrics) and I used a mix of soft pink and soft green ferns printed on a navy duck cotton as the reverse.  The navy against the red is a stunning combination!

What do you think?

Sew-long for now!
