Today I am posting for both week 3 and 4 of our Zakka 2.0 SAL as I had missed last week.
Before going to that, I would like to thank all who wished and prayed for my father in law and my family. Just to update, he is yet still in coma, however has gone through few brain operation and are showing positive signs. We are still hoping for the best and focusing on the positives!
I have been slow in everything I do these days, but I am picking up and feeling positive at most time. So, thank you for all your supports especially those who left comments and dropping emails. You have made me feel a bit more strong and feeling positive.
I planned to use it as a knee protector while kneeling during gardening, so I backed the placemat with a vinyl as the fourth layer to protect itself from being too dirty. I like this idea, maybe I might use it for placemats too as it is easier to clean - just wipe!
Vinyl backing for easy cleaning
I handsew the binding on the front side as it is easier to sew on fabric than vinyl!
Overall, I find this simple patchwork quite challenging as a lot of the seams were on bias this time and paper piecing using this method is quite difficult for me as some of the seams were not included on the paper foundation.
