What are you most proud of? Creating a set of placemats that could serve double duty! What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's a whole lot faster to just buy your bias tape binding. I made my own. Took a bit more work and time, but, being on a tight budget, I went through my stash, found enough soft mint green cotton (which would work for BOTH sides of the placemat prints), cut my 2" strips on the bias, joined them diagonally, and went to work!
