First Finish of 2016

Finished –   two cute place mats for our caravan.   I found the pattern on Suzy’s Artsy Crafty SitCom, a fun blog I follow which is full of all sorts of things.  Craft, cooking, dogs, and living in a  RV.  I used Suzy’s pattern for her free Happy Camper potholder pattern and made it into a set of place mats.  And here they are set out on the caravan table.

Set of place mats for the caravan

All colour coordinated of course, to go with the burgundy furnishings in the caravan.  So cute, and the stripey sun shade really adds a little something, I feel.  These were fun to make, and I appreciate Suzy’s Sitcom making the pattern available to a fellow happy camper from this side of the world.

I LOVE the stripey sunshade! We called it an awning on our 5th wheel trailer (aka caravan) we used to have. Perfect for your travels.
