I made some placemats.

    Newer Older

    For some reason, we have no placemats, and it's been bothering me when people come over to eat. So, I decided to sew some (even though yes I could go buy some at Target for like 50 cents). I used scrap fabric from the stash and half of an Orla Kiely tablecloth.

    I used this tutorial to make them. She actually does binding around the edges, which would've been super cute. I'd planned on doing a binding with the Orla Kiely fabric but I didn't have enough left over, so I just decided to sew the right sides together, leave a hole, turn them inside out, and then top stitch. easy peasy! I've made five so far - the other contrast color is brown. I have another brown one to make.

    I used super heavy interfacing to make them stiff. I think I like them! Not the most exciting thing I've ever made, but useful, right?

      Gorgeous! How do you wash them, if they have the interfacing? Spot clean, or can they go in the washer?
