I've been busy making placemats for our wedding potluck. I'm making them out of muslin and a coarse yellow fabric that I found at the thrift store. The yellow fabric used to serve as curtains, but that's all I really know about it.
I'm still not quite finished with them, which you can see from the bits left unsewn, but I like their overall look. I consider this my first real sewing project, so I'm really happy that it wasn't a total disaster. I was nervous, I'll admit.
I still have quite a few more of these to make, but I think I'll switch to some of our other wedding colors. It might be fun to give each table its own theme. Once I figure out the dimensions of our tables, I'll be sewing table linens and runners as well. Lots to do, lots to do.
As for Matt, he is making plans for a trellis. He sent me this picture to give me an idea of how he wants to build it:
I think it's going to be perfect.
