Sunny flowers


Stencilled luncheon cloth

You may remember the stencilling tips I gave in this post here . From that stencil I created a luncheon cloth from a recycled bed sheet.
 
 
I stencilled the image I had drawn up four times in each of the corners. And was careful about the placement so they were arranged nicely.

 
Then I had to ask mum how to turn the edges over, (I had a fair idea but needed to be sure I was going to do it right). When I had all the edges nicely pressed and sewn into a narrow hem...

 
...I had a thrifty finished luncheon cloth. I am wanting to do some napkins to match and I think the luncheon cloth needs maybe a crochet trim edge, which I am looking for so I can crochet the trim my self. I will of course, show when I complete the set.
 
I have enough of this bedsheet to go far. So expect to see more uses for it.
