So in an effort to keep myself busy and cheer the place up, I decided to dig through the office closet and make something. Anything. While watching Mama Mia. Because that movie could cheer up the grouchiest person ever, even Great Aunt March.
So anyway, I came up with this.
When I recovered my lamp shades, I went a little overboard on the burlap. Basically I have enough to make these place mats for years to come. Hence the term freebie. So while wishing I could run around the Greek islands and sing like Meryl Streep, I colored in the designs and called it this project done. No hemming. Nothing fancy.
I blame this all on Anthropologie. If they lowered the prices on their table linens I wouldn't be forced to do weird things with burlap and black markers. And no, I have no idea how they should be cleaned. I'll probably just throw them in with the towels and dry them on high heat. KIDDING.
