NEW ITEM available - Custom Placemats

I love the fact that I don't always have to come up with new item ideas. Sometimes my customers come up with ideas for me.

A previous customer and his family were trying to find nice, cloth placemats but were having a hard time finding anything that would work for them. So they contacted me asking if this is something I can make. It had been a while since I had made placemats (I had made a set nearly 3 years ago for my family), but I always say that I want to be challenged so I said yes.

As with all my custom items, the client had complete control over colors and pattern. Even though we didn't get together in person, I sent MANY pictures of yarn and pattern-samples until they found exactly what they wanted.

Then work began on a set of 8 red-on-turquoise placemats using a small diamond pattern.

I was able to eek out two placemats using different colors to use as samples before running out of warp on the loom. It is amazing how a simple color-change can make a huge different.

I am excited to add this NEW ITEM and look forward to experimenting with placemats using other colors and patterns in the future!

ABOVE:

Diamond pattern in two consistent colors (red on turquoise) has a very "formal" feel.

BELOW:

Diamond pattern using different colored backgrounds and an off-center stripe has a more "casual" look.
