What you will need:
-piece of fabric
-scissors or (better yet), rotary cutter and mat
- sewing machine on a tight zigzag stitch (or far easier!) a Serger
First determine the size that you would like your placemat(s). Cut each piece to the size, adding about a 1/4 inch to each side for finishing.
On your sewing machine, sew along all of the edges with a tight, wide zigzag stitch, backstitching at the corners.
Then, trim super, duper close to your stich on the outside, so your stich is on the edge of the placemat
Or if you are lucky like me, simply run it through your serger to get it all done in one, quick step :)
Voila, you are done! So easy, you could be super ambitious and make yourself some fancy, matching napkins :)
