Get the table ready for holiday entertaining with some stylish and colorful reversible placemats. See all the fun steps below!

Materials Needed:

  • 2 coordinating fabrics. For a set of 8 placemats, you will need 2 yards of fabric in each pattern, for a total of 4 yards of fabric. (One yard of fabric in each fabric will make 4 placemats).
  • Brother Sewing Machine
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Iron
Tip: Iron your fabrics before cutting for best results.

Instructions

Step 1. Measure and mark approx. 15″ wide X 19″ long rectangle on each fabric and cut out the rectangles. You’ll need two rectangles of each fabric for each placemat.

Step 2. Place the outer (right) sides of the fabric together and pin in place, so the inner sides are facing out.

Step 3. Sew a straight line ½” away from the raw edges, removing pins as you sew.

Step 4. Leave a 4” opening at the bottom of the placemat, so that you can turn it right-side out.

Step 5. Trim the corners of your fabric, then turn the placemat right-side out.

Step 6. Iron the placemat flat, paying careful attention to press the seams and corners hard.

Step 7. Sew a topstitch over your 4” opening, then all the way around the remaining perimeter of the placemat.

Now you’ve created a placemat! Repeat these steps for each one and enjoy!

  • How great would it be to embroider the November free design on these napkins plus a person’s name and the date for your Christmas dinner. Everyone would have a napkin with their name on it along with the date in one corner and then they could make a collection each year of their napkins. Would that not be the best memory!!! Just love all the projects that Brother gives me just because I bought an embroidery/sewing machine….
