"A few weeks ago, I spotted this top at Nordstrom. You probably know by now that I am completely and hopelessly obsessed with eyelet, so of course I loved it. I also realized it would be a pretty simple sewing project - and even easier, a quick refashion.

With a simple Target tee and some eyelet fabric, I whipped this up the other day and I am in love with it. I originally planned to just do the peplum, but since the top needs to be a little boxier to make the peplum hang correctly, I ended up adding the eyelet panels on the side to add width and I am so glad I did because I think it makes the entire shirt. I also chose a V-neck tee because I like them best." - Merrick White

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.
