50's Style Placemats: Le Challenge

Once upon a time I bought two tea towels from IKEA and they stayed for a long long time folded in a draw. I liked them so much I was afraid that the Evil Marks of the Kitchen would attack them. The spell I cast to protect them made them fall asleep for one hundred months (?!), hidden away in that draw until...

Fairy Le Challenge arrived and magically opened that draw, freeing the two tea towels from their long sleep...

with a wave of her wand, Fairy Le Challenge transformed the tea towels into four pretty 50's style placemats and made the Breakfast Table their new reign.

And they lived happily ever after.

P.S. Fairy Le Challenge also cast a spell by which the four placemats shall never be attacked by the Evil Marks of the Kitchen... how I wish!!!

  1. That is so cute! I wonder how it would look as a child's skirt? My toddler adores all things cupcake!

  2. Fairy Le Challenge is very talented. I know what you mean about saving pretty things and never using them in case they get dirty.

  3. I hadn't seen Le Challenge before but had been thinking about trying one or two smaller projects - this looks like a great way to get started. Your placemats are cool - I love that 1950s vibe (I have a yearning for a 50s kitchen cupboard).

  4. very sweet. I love the green and yellow backing fabrics - nice and bright :-)

  5. Such a happy ending for the little cupcakes! They look so cute - I'm also a fan of the retro kitchen.
