Outside of the actual Cthulhu fabric, this was a exercise in stash busting. I used store bought bias tape (I inherited tons from Mom), and also used up some of the quilting cotton I bought prior to understanding fabric. I'm probably going to try and bust the rest of those uninformed choices out sometime between now and February (the time I actually get Christmas presents done).

They aren't the prettiest things in the world in terms of accuracy. I'm hoping people will be too busy rolling sanity checks to notice wonky stitching. That and they were smaller than the average placemat for reasons of frugality, or eeking out as much as I could with what I had. I do need one more package of the brighter blue double fold bias tape for the two I have left to finish. I have a navy blue, but my husband pointed out that two different shades of blue would trigger my OCD tendencies. When he's right, he's right. *sighs*
Soo... that's one less thing off of my UFO pile. Now to make a few minor adjustments to the 70's pattern and get ready to cut it out tonight, after the second half of my circle skirt class. WOO!
