The idea was good. The execution, not so much. Learning for this placemat: use tape and make sure your lines are straight. Or don’t design lines that pick up after a piece of patchwork. or at least, draw the lines before sandwiching. Or something. I do have another one almost finished though, and I am much happier with that one. Maybe at meals this one can be like drawing the short straw..whoever gets stuck with this placemat has to go buy drinks or dessert.
