Now that Christmas is over and I have packed away all my holiday décor, I am starting to plan for Valentine’s Day. I assembled all of my favourite pink and red fabrics – tiny florals, polka dots, stripes and more – for my inspiration. Pink and red is always a lovely combination.
I love to have pretty tea parties for any occasion – Valentines, Mothers Day, birthday, anniversary, or high tea. Dressing my table for these occasions is so much fun. Creating a pretty table was just the inspiration I needed for my latest pattern design.
My latest pattern is the Hexie Heart Placemat. It consists of a pretty foundation paper pieced heart in the middle of the placemat, and has a striped patchwork border. The placemat can be used as a placemat, mug rug, trivet, coaster or pot holder. If using as a potholder or trivet, simply add a layer of insulated batting (such as insul-bright).
The Hexie Heart Placemat is quick to construct and can be easily made in an afternoon. Choose pretty shades of pink or red, or use any colour combination you chose. I couldn’t resist adding a striped binding. I am going to make a whole set of these for my next high tea.
The Hexie Heart Placemat is available for immediate download from my Etsy store. The PDF Pattern includes 12 pages of photos, step by step instructions, and full sized templates that you can easily print at home (in both A4 and Letter size format).
I love to see what you make with my patterns. Please consider sharing your makes on Instagram using #hexieheartplacemat and #aspoonfulofsugardesigns
