fabric place mats
While making risotto the other night I whipped up these place mats.
They're easy enough that even if you've never sewn before you could do these.
Grab a place mat for size and measure around.
Cut two rectangles half an inch bigger for each place mat.
Then sew right sides together, leaving a few inches gap to turn. Iron then top stitch close to the edge.
I'd been struggling to find ones I liked in my price range, and the off of fabric was a couple of pounds in Ikea. I've got some spare that I'm using for coasters too.
They work really well for less posh meals too. Peanut butter sandwiches are more than welcome too.
And if they get dirty? They just pop in the wash, mine have already been in a few times and are holding up great!
Would also make a great gift if you could part with yours :)
