I’m sharing this DIY sewing project with you today because I’m pretty excited about this and I have a really good reason to be excited!
I absolutely love these placemats….so much that I started making them as soon as I saw this tutorial. Why? Well, I own a round table and these are perfect, since all of the placemats I own are square.
These are so lovely and unlike any placemats I’d ever seen! I’m actually working on my second set of them, since I have so much leftover material that I could use.
While making my second set of these I decided I would actually make some of these for this upcoming Christmas. I’ve been swearing for years that I was going to get my Christmas shopping done in early, but never seemed to do this. I’m actually going to do that this year!
On Pinterest I noticed that people are making these in a miniature size and calling them “mug rugs” to set their coffee mugs on and they are super cute. So, while I’m at it, I’m gonna give those a shot as well.
Watch how Laura Coia, with Sew Very Easy, makes these wonderful placemats in her step by step tutorial so you can get busy making them as well! If you need something new for your table, you are going to love having these. I just made eight of them last month and they are as pretty as can be! The tutorial shows you exactly how to make them, too, which we know is not always the case.
