During a recent tea party, I realized I would like some little mats to use for a bit of tea and cake.
So I sewed up some patchwork teatime mats. I used fifteen 3.25″ squares. (I like to mix gingham and florals). After assembling the patchwork, I rounded the corners and added some lace I had on hand. The back is just plain linen. So far, they work pretty well–they even have the tea stains to prove it 🙂
