Recently my friend, Gwen, sent me pictures of a project she was working on as a gift for a friend. I fell in love with it's romantic appeal and practicality.
Gwen took a scalloped quilted place mat and folded the end over. Then she stitched compartments in the place mat, making a tri-fold stationary holder with a space for a writing pen. Then she added a gross-grain ribbon to tie it altogether.
The final result is a very pretty stationary holder that can be tucked in a travel bag, stored in a pretty basket on a desk, or carried to a table so one could write a note while sipping on a hot cuppa tea.
Thank you, Gwen, for letting me share your nifty craft idea!
