This post was published recently on our sister blog: the French viejanome. I have translated it as I think you will like what Celine created & shared with the French blog viewers:
Fresh, delicious and so summer, watermelon is almost ‘ as thirst-quenching as a glass of water, especially during heat waves like what we have been experiencing. A few slices are presented here on a tablecloth printed with this refreshing theme: table accessories; napkin; mini-mits; apron & table cloth are all enhanced with colour coordinated decorative ribbon and ric-rac.
The Janome feet shown below were used for this sewing: (from left) NARROW HEM FOOT 6MM ; OPEN TOE FOOT; PIPING FOOT; RIBBON SEQUIN FOOT; SATIN STITCH FOOT; NARROW HEM FOOT 4MM
This table setting is a quick, easy and perfect project for the beginner seamstress.
The tablecloth: to border quickly and turn precisely at the corners, I used two optional narrow hem feet: 4mm and 6mm for the hems of two different widths at both ends.‘ Rolled Hem Foot’
The napkin: the decoration was done in two stages; the red stripe is done with the foot F1 or F2 around all four sides & above the band of this braid. Then to give a most beautiful effect, I’ve added the green ric-rac that I stitched with optional foot Ribbon & Sequin foot RS.
The mini-mits: the two sets shown in the picture were cut from various parts of the fabric. Red piping defines the location of the fingers, and to hold everything in place, I used the optional Piping foot I .
Apron: very simple to cut… two semi-circles create the bib which was finished with a straight stitch seam rounded on the curves and ric rac added using the Ribbon sequin foot again.
Long live the summer and… water melon!
