This is so cute and would be so much fun for little ones to teach them all those proper etiquette rules for using flatware! I am wondering if this would be too bumpy to put a plate on as a placemat until the flatware was removed? This same idea could be expanded for a centerpiece table runner, or even as a wall hanging, or draped on the back of a sofa for some nice thanksgiving holiday decor! Fun And creative project!
