    Hahaha you are so cute. I love your line when you were like “I’m really good”. Hehe!!!

    Very fun! I always breeze past place mats in the store because I don’t use them at my table (just one more thing to clean) but this is a great project for all those fun summer patterns in stores right now.

      Yes! I totally agree. I would never use one on my table. But crafts? Yes 🙂
      Thanks Melissa

    I’m working on turning a big blue ikea bag into a pool bag. When I started reading your blog years ago, it gave me the confidence to just jump in and do things! It helps I don’t mind if they’re a little off. 🙂

    Your website has re-generated my enthusiasm for sewing – especially your pattern for shorts. It has also motivated me to clear the clutter in my craft room so that I can actually reach my sewing machine!

    I love this!! I had some cute place mats hanging around but never had use for them! Now they’ve become the best beach bag 🙂 thanks for all the great and inspiring ideas!
