I have always added a placemat in my kid’s lunch box because I know they can be messy eaters. Over the years I have noticed that it has become a trend and most schools are now asking for one.  I have always used a Camelot Fabrics print that would represent my child’s favorite character and I decided to share with you the fun I had making this year’s placemat for my little monkey!

I hope you’ve enjoyed last week’s post showing how to make a pencil case for your kids.  This week I want to show you how to make a place mat by making just a few changes to one of our table runner patterns.

I’m sure you’ve seen our great pattern  “The Sky is Falling” Table Runner by Melissa Stramel of Lilac Lane Patterns.  I really love that pattern so I decided to re-work it into a place mat.  This can be so much fun with any one of our fabric collection.  Can you imagine fussy cutting from one of our licensed brand that your kid loves?  In this How-To, I chose to feature our Happy Thoughts collection.

If you’ve read my Moody Monday blog featuring our Disney•Pixar Cars Collection last June than you know how much I love the movies.  Now you were probably wondering why it wasn’t followed by a How To Tuesday right?  That’s simply because I had to make it!  It’s now ready and the timing couldn’t be more perfect since we have to get these kids ready for back to school!  So without further ado, here is a cute pencil case!

August is probably my favorite month out of the year.  First of all it’s the month that has the most birthdays in my agenda!  Not only was I born in August, but as time goes by I realize that a lot of people I know are also from that month.   Within two weeks, I celebrate over 12 birthdays!  And would you believe me if I’d say that I share my very own birthday with three other friends!  So my birthday has never been about me but more about friends and family rejoicing that we survived yet another year!

But I digress…

In our Moody Monday we spoke of the new Star Trek collection that is launching soon and showed the panel we made in trapunto.    A few people asked me what I meant by trapunto so I thought I should explained this technique on our How To Tuesday!
