Raffia, you've got to be committed.

This was my latest project for Mollie Makes. I used raffia to stitch onto plastic canvas to make this place mat and coaster. The effect is great but it takes commitment to get it done! You might want to start with a smaller sized piece to give it a go and see how you get on. I edged it with a bias binding that looks a bit Liberty.

One of my favourite things about writing craft DIYs is the styling, it's a great excuse to buy little accessories for the house. The tea towel here came from Hema, if you've never been, hunt one out, in my opinion it's a close second to my first love Tiger Stores.
