  15. I just loved the place mats, so simple and I love to sew. It gave me some great ideas to make some bibs for my grand children, the newest of which is due to arrive about Feb 8th. I have some fat quarters lying around and I’m really excited to try out the vinyl adhesive, I’ve never seen this before but I just love it! Wish me luck! Loved the show note found a new favorite craft show!
