About a year and a half ago, we offered a class on Bargello Placemats. It was moderately popular, but we're no longer offering it. So I decided to donate the class samples to Molly's school for their auction.Set of four

One of these days I'll get this kind of stuff up on Etsy. But what if no one buys my stuff? I put the value of these at $50, because honestly, that's about what I'd have to charge just to get any kind of profit out of them at all. The backing fabric alone is $10. Add to that the fronts, fabric lost while piecing, typical waste, binding etc., and we'll looking at at least $30 worth of fabric. Plus thread and batting. I don't think $50 is crazy considering it would be less than double my materials cost. But would people really spend $50 on a set of placemats?
