Free Placemat Patterns - Over 60 designs!
A set of pretty placemats can be a great way to dress up a table, either as an
alternative to, or in addition to a lovely tablecloth. And making a placemat (and you
can sew up just one placemat without feeling the need to make an entire set) can
be a great way to use up those smaller pieces of fabric you may have leftover from
other projects. And if you're new to quilting, one of the quilted designs can be a
great way to try quilting without needing to commit to sewing an entire quilt.
And just a reminder that if you want to be able to launder your finished placemats
(they're bound to be the recipient of a bit of spilled food here and there), to
preshrink your fabric first so that your placemat will retain its shape after washing
(especially if your fabric is 100% cotton or a cotton blend). And if you’ll be making
your placemats from several different fabrics (like the reversible or patchwork
designs) and you want to be able to launder the placemats, you may want to test
each of your fabrics first for colorfastness.
