Reversible Fall Placemats

Here is a quick project that will help your table get ready for fall!

In sewing classes, I had several students choose to make these reversible placemats as their first project.  They are very easy to make and they can give an instant new look to your table that corresponds to the holiday or season you are celebrating.





You can find the link to the directions that I used with students HERE.  Typically you will need 1 yard of fabric from two coordinating fabrics in order to make 3 placements.  If you need 6 placemats, then purchase 2 yards of each fabric.  (For 4 placements, buy 1 and 1/3 yards of each fabric).  The directions also call for fusible fleece to go on the inside but you can also use cotton batting which is what I used.  You will only need one layer of batting or fusible fleece to go in the middle of your fabric layers.  

I plan on also making some for Christmas as well.  If you make some, I would love to see pictures!  You can post them over on my Facebook page or email them to me at sew-inspired@hotmail.com and I will be sure to post them here!

As always, if you have any questions about to make them, please feel free to contact me!
