Create a family heirloom.

I got this idea from some place mats i saw at Anthropologie. Strips of vintage lace are stitched together with some strips of muslin. Stamp a message with archival fabric safe ink. I think a set of place mats might be overwhelming, but a lacey table runner is perfect for winter tables. Quick construction, no edges to finish of. If you are worried about unraveling, use some fray stop on the raw edges. It is a nice compliment to my pottery pieces made by my friend Maeera Mougin.
