I cut the fabric for the "B" out of a quilted placemat that I was going to use to make one of my placemat purses ..... I like it for this purpose much better.
It gives it a frayed, shabby chic look that I hope she will like. I know she admired this one over at The Autocrat, so I hope mine is pretty close. I was going to give it to her for her birthday next month, but I just couldn't wait!
