As my sister should now have received her birthday present, I can reveal what was inside!
Because I had to ship it to Sri Lanka I knew it had to be something small and lightweight. My sister likes setting the table for a meal and presentation is important so I thought something nice for her table would be a good idea. I chose the monochrome print because it’s modern and clean. I made the placemat first and it’s lightly quilted, with horizontal stitching to hold it in place. The coaster is the same. The napkin is lined with white cotton so it looks more ‘finished’ and not just as though someone has dumped a piece of fabric in the bowl!
It was fortunate we have black, white and grey crockery for this photo!
One handmade birthday present down… Many, many more to go!
