    Default 6 sets

    I finished 6 table sets for one of my nieces. I made them out of her grandmother's trousseau (sheets, blankets).
    I also used baby blankets from my niece for the binding. Now I guess I'll make her some napkins to go along, as I have some linen from the same grandmother. We'll see. I like re-using and upcycling fabrics.

    I just noticed number 6 is underneath. it doesn't show in the picture.

    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    What a beautiful gift you've given her. I'm sure she'll treasure them.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.

    Thank you for the comment. They are washable up to 95 Celsius. Tried that out.
