Fabric games. So a few months ago a friend took me to go fabric shopping. Well what we pulled up to was well …. let the picture speak for itself.
Hmmmm …. but when you walk inside ahhhhh heaven!!!! Tables and tables of fabric and on the day we went it was 40% per yard on already great prices.
Among the awesomeness was this really cool fabric that my friend said “oh my mom plays this”. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking at and had never heard of the game.
So what I learned is that the game is called Mahjong. It is a tile based game that originated in China during the Qing dynasty. It is commonly played by four players . Similar to the Western card game rummy, Mahjong is a game of skill strategy, and calculation and involves a degree of chance. So what do you do with fabric that looks like a game you like? You make linens for entertaining and playing with your friends! I was commissioned to sew up some table linens for a active woman living in a retirement community were she plays and entertains.
Coasters, napkins, placemats and my favorite fabric baskets!
Now I need to go make some of my own!
