Tea for Two

Today I finally decided to tackle some of my 1930's scraps.  I wouldn't call these two mug rugs they are a little too big, and too small to be called a place mat.  They are the perfect size for tea!

This morning began by slicing into a stack of various sized scraps.  I decided to use my 5 inch hexagon template and my 2.5 inch tumbler template.  

Although, this flower pot of scraps does look cute sitting my sewing area.  Not for long.  

Here are all the hexagons cut and ready to go.

Patch volunteered to join me for a tea party at high noon today.  We of course tried out our new placemats and celebrated being done another project.

The backing to the hexagon is a cherry pattern.

The back of the tumblers is a little kitty.  

Now I get to actually use my new mat and enjoy a real cup of tea!  Happy Saturday everyone, kick back and relax.

Sew long for now, 



  1. Those little prints are perfect for those half hexis! I thought they were whole hexagons at first. Both mats are very sweet. Love the pictures! Looks like you and Patch had a lovely afternoon! Great job, Chelsea!

  2. Hello through Lily's blog hop. I love your retro fabrics and your photos are great. Hope you have a good week, Sue

  3. Your tea party with Patch made me it! Also, I think it was very clever to use Scrabble bits as name tags. I've often wondered about your blog name. Mystery solved! Enjoy your pretty new mats.:)

  4. So pretty! I love tumblers and hexies! And the 30's fabrics are gorgeous.

  5. Adorable! I love your photos of them too. Great style! So glad you linked up to TGIFF! Could you include a link back to the party so your readers can find us too? Thanks!

  6. Love what you have done with the 30's prints! I simply adore the 30's prints. Time to dig them out and get busy.
