I made 2 place mats as gifts for 2 special boys this year, my grandson James (who turned 2 the day after Hallowe'en) and Kaden, the son of former neighbours.
The next time I make one, I want to make the spider legs with wider ric rac. I think it will look not so anorexic. :) The napkin (in the photo below) tucks into the spider body along with the cutlery.
And, the curtains? Still not up...sigh.
