We have a white elephant exchange at work every Christmas. It's often quite amusing with an array of odd or ugly holiday-themed items. This year I made a trade to nab a set of vintage placemats and napkins. I actually like them a lot.
The napkins wouldn't be hard to incorporate into something else – A quilt? An apron? Doll clothes? The placemats stump me though. They're quilted so I am wondering if they could become potholders. Future projects I suppose!
