While at the local thrift store I saw these dang cute place mats and thought for sure I could make something out of them. I bought them for 50 cents a piece and bought 4 of them. They sat on my sewing desk for a while because I was imagining the different things I could make. Well, Josie finally asked me to make her something with the place mats so here it is:
I made a top and a skirt to match. I put some elastic on the back of the shirt to make it fit better and then added ties for the neck. For the skirt, I sewed the two placemats together at the sides, added elastic to the top and VIOLA!
