A 'Fussy Cut' is not pitching a fit in the barber chair when one side of your bangs is longer than the other. Although that is perfectly justified behavior. To fussy cut in sewing is to select and cut out a specific motif from a printed fabric or center your pattern piece directly over a design within your fabric that you want to feature. This is what we did to perfectly center the beautiful pineapple design on each of our placemats.

You've heard the joke: 'what is an occasional table the rest of the time?' Well, while you're laughing, that poor table is sitting there naked. It's time to make those small occasional tables attractive and important members of your patio party. It's one of the simplest sewing projects you can do.

Rectangular placemats fit great on a square or rectangular table. But a lot of outdoor furniture sets feature round tables. This is one of those "square peg in a round hole" problems. Our project will help you make trapezoidal placemats, which fit nicely together when placed around a circular table. The sewing is the same as a rectangular placemat, but the shape gives a beautiful effect for each place setting. Your guests will be impressed – especially your seventh grade math teacher.

The book of Classic Picnic Decorating says one must always default to the red and white checked tablecloth. We say, 'to heck with that.' Besides, there's no such book! Instead, we invite you to create your own vibrant and stylish table covering. Our instructions will help you make a banded tablecloth that uses three different printed fabrics. The unique ties at the corners look great and foil the wind by helping secure the table cloth to the table.
