Delight your little one (and keep your table clean) with this easy holiday project. If you can sew a straight seam, you can make these cute placemats, perfect for decorating your home or giving as gifts. They go together super-fast, thanks to a technique that combines appliqué and quilting in one easy step. Use novelty prints to make these for a holiday (like in the sample above), or use subdued fabrics for a more traditional look. No matter which you choose, these placemats just get better each time they’re washed!
Raw-edge applique techniques make this placemat simple to construct, and the pattern goes together so quickly that your customers can make a set for every holiday! Perfect to display with your seasonal and novelty fabrics, this pattern also looks nice when made using all-over prints.
A person with average sewing skills should be able to finish this project in about one naptime (2 hours).
