Placemats

So I thought my chairs would get a little lonely, so I've sewed some matching placemats. Really simple!
I cut two layers of fabric at 12" x 17" (so my finished size will be 11" x 16"). (Repeat for a second, etc. placemat.)


Place them together with the patterns facing eachother, and pin in place.


Then sew them together. I allowed for a half inch seam all the way around. And left about 2" to flip the placemat right side out.


To finish them off, I sew around the edges at a quarter inch from the edge.


Here's the matching set!
