My 20-minute March challenge marches on -- Day 9!

I know it's early, but if anyone has already decided to go as Blossom for next Halloween please let me know. Because I'd be more than happy to send these patterns your way:
Alternately the red beret with the big bow, could be used in a Monica Lewinsky costume for a Nineties Pop Culture Reference Masquerade Ball.
(Now I'm wishing that such a thing existed.)
I can't decide which is more embarrassing. That I bought these patterns and used them several times to make various funky hats OR that I have kept them for 20+ years.
I found them this morning when I was casting about for fabric scraps to make these placemats:
I'm hoping now that the boys are 9 and 11 and have rudimentary table manners we can do away with plastic placemats. They would just as soon go without placemats, but I can't do it. Placemat-less dining is barbaric. This is a home. Not a cafeteria. We will use placemats! Damn it!
In case you are wondering, I used Thirty Handmade Days' patchwork placemat tutorial -- though I deviated greatly. That site links to Made By Rae's tutorial on binding the edges of a quilt (or in this case a placemat) and I think it's pretty slick.
I might make another set. Maybe I'll even try having them match one another.
