Having made [and blogged about earlier this year] curtains for our newly decorated dining room, I decided to make a set of placemats with the fabric leftover from the project.
I was inspired by Linda Lee's Craftsy Class on mitred corners so went on to make some napkins as well.

The only problem was the huge amount of thread it took so the next one I chose a less complex design. Now having two different napkins I decided to change the design for all of them which I now realise makes them even more interesting.
