Plum Pudding, Purple Fizz, Icy Mauve...

DSC09765I was browsing Pinterest the other day, when I came across this Moda Bake Shop placemat tutorial by Crazy Old Ladies. Love at first sight! I knew I had to give it a try.

DSC09766As usual, I didn't follow the instructions precisely; I swapped white for grey, used Nature's Palette by Lyndhurst Studio because that's what I had on hand, changed the height of the placemats and used my machine to do the lettering instead of hand stitching the names. I'm such a rebel.

I found some of the names for the colours online like Velvet Slipper, Bunchberry, Taste of Berry, etc. and had fun coming up with others like Purple Fizz.

DSC09768While the grey looks fine, I think the white is what gives it that paint chip feel though so I'll do the white time. Guess I should have listened to the teacher...

I like it with the ombre fabric, although mine was more swirly than the Moda fabric. I'm thinking this would also be fun to try some of these placemats using the Design Seeds palettes.

One gift done! :D

Linking up with Sew Modern Monday over at Canoe Ridge Creatons!


  1. I saw those! Love your version of them!

  2. What a lucky person to get such a nice gift! Great finish, it looks wonderful with the ombre effect.

  3. Yum! I've always thought it would be awesome to be the person who gets to name all of the colors.

  4. These look great. I love those fabrics. I think the machine embroidery gives a more authentic paint chip effect :)

  5. I agree with Janine...and i really like those colors.

  6. You are a rebel M-R, and thank goodness for that! I love how yours turned out and the fabric names are a hoot!

  7. They look great. Nothing wrong with being a rebel :)

  8. now this is divine....makes me like these shades of lilac, purple....
