Thanksgiving Tables

When my side of the family comes over, there are 16 of us, kids included! This year I decided I wanted to make some fun turkey place mats for the kid's table like the ones I saw at Pottery Barn a few years ago.

I've had the pattern for a couple weeks. Then on Monday, it dawned on me that I still needed fabric! I spent a few hours on Tuesday cutting them out, then on Wednesday I assembled them. I almost threw my hand-me-down sewing machine out the window a few times, but I took a break and later that night it started working fine again.

Here is how they looked at the kid's table.

My favorite thing about these place mats is the little pockets for the silverware...not that my kids actually USE their silverware!!!

This is how the grown-up's table turned out!
