I have made two dinner mats for the girls today.
They are not tremendously well colour coordinated but this was a need project not eye candy. I had a bit of Cath Kidston 'Provence Rose' left over from my kitchen curtains I made 3 years ago, some gingham from a machine patchwork duvet cover from 5 years ago, some red floral from Laura Ashley..oooh I made a waistcoat from that in the early nineties and finally some spotty fabric recycled from a summer Dress that was too small for Little M.(that is the one that irks me)
I used up some bias binding out of my sewing basket which isn't probably the ideal colour but there you are. Why is it a need project then? Because this weekend we had to sand the table to get the Spaghetti bolognese/chocolate/food stains out of the table!
