Spring Place Mats: Beginner Sewing Project
Spring is a time to refresh your space, don't you think? I had this pretty chocolate brown and pink fabric that begged to be used. So I whipped up some easy place mats to give my spring table a little pizzazz! This is a great beginner sewing project too.
You will need two pieces of fabric (I used the same for both sides but you could do two coordinating fabrics) approximately 15" x 21" . The finished place mat will be approximately 14" x 20". You will also need one piece of iron-on light weight interfacing in the same dimensions.
Iron on the interfacing according to the package directions to the wrong side of one piece of fabric.
Layer your second piece of fabric on top so right sides are facing. Your interfacing should be face down. Pin in place.
Sew around the edge of the pieces leaving an opening so you can flip it right side out. I used a 1/2"seam allowance. Before flipping trim excess fabric and you can clip your corners if you wish. That will give you cleaner corners once flipped.
