Is there anything more summery than a sunflower? I love how bright they are and how they always turn their faces to the sun. This week, the weather has been less than summery so I decided to bring summer inside instead. I absolutely adore how much this table set brightens up our dining table.
I made placemats, coasters, napkins and napkin holders. The inspiration to make this set actually came from the slippers I made last week. The flower on the front is almost but not quite a sunflower, so I decided I wanted to make an actual sunflower. I made the coaster first, then made lots more coasters to go with it. I was actually planning on leaving it at that but then I thought that a placemat would look lovely, to go with the coaster. While I was making the placemat, I decided to make a napkin holder and finally, I thought I may aswell make a napkin to go with it and complete the set. The final product is a full sunflower table set, for use everyday or for parties.
The coaster, placemat and napkin holder can be made in the yarn of your choice, although I would definitely recommend something washable. Cotton yarn, or another natural yarn, should be used for the napkin, to make it absorbent.
