Last night I pieced together my very favorite combination of fabrics to make a dishmat, inspired by this one made by Darby.
I try to avoid plastics and use glass where I can when it comes to food and dishes in our home. One place I can't skip plastic, though, is cups. With two little boys, plastic is a must, and no matter the dry setting I use on the dishwasher, they always come out dripping wet.
So this was an essential project.
I'm excited to make more of these. I know they will be lovely shower gifts, wrapped around wooden spoons and tied with a wide ribbon, and of course paired with my favorite shower gift of a newlywed cookbook.
I like the Cath Kidston-ish combination of fabrics so much, I want to piece together a quilt for our bed with it now. How long do you think it would take my husband to notice the flowers and bright pink polka dots?? I'm sure he'd think they're very manly!
