What you need to make a 19″ by 13″ placemat:
Fabric: 14″ of 45″ wide cotton fabric will make one placemat.
Basic equipment, tools and notions
(Optional) supplies to make pattern: 4 pieces of computer paper, tape, ruler or tape measure
SEW: Stitch, trim, turn
TIP: When stitching a corner, pivot two times to make the turn, rather than stitching a squared point. With this method the corner will square out the best when trimmed, turned and pressed.
FINISH: Press, slipstitch opening
When creating, go classic or go on a designing binge. Have fun! A group effort can be a wonderful memento at a special event.
