This pile includes placemats, napkins, and a table runner with beautiful lace all purchased for under $10. I took them home, washed and ironed them, and created this:
I had so much fun putting this journal together. Using the bright placemat as a base, I cut up and layered the napkins, added the lace trim, and finally my bluebird (which I sketched and handpainted on muslin). The words were printed on vellum, cut out, and sewn down by machine. Finally, an old button for trim!
