How to Sew Double-sided Placemats

When I got married I decided to use one of the black tablecloths from the reception for our dining room table since I bought them all.  I didn’t want everything sitting up somewhere boxed up, deteriorating and never be used  I wanted to look at it every day and remember when I married my awesome husband.

I love the tablecloths, but food can get messy so I decided to make some placemats to protect the tablecloths.  Since I decided at the last minute, I used 2 old sweatshirts as the batting in the middle, because let’s face it, we’re gonna be washing these placemats so we might as well quilt them.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

2 Colors of Fabric
Matching thread
Pinking Shears (optional for fabrics that fray)
Batting or old sweatshirts (1 sweatshirt = 2 placemats)
Invisible marker
Binding Clips or pins
Dowel rod for turning corners
