I discovered this ingenious undertaking on Youtube simply in time! As a result of I had simply discovered 6 placemats at a storage sale and Chrismas was arising in a few months and I used to be on a fairly tight funds and actually needed to maintain the associated fee down as a lot as potential. I actually liked the placemats as effectively as a result of that they had by no means been used and so they have been this vivid paisley print, I knew everybody would love. I started my first DIY Placemat Pouch by stitching in a contrasting zipper at one finish first then connected the opposite finish to the zipper additionally.
Then you should have what seems to be like a cylinder, all it’s a must to do is press the ends collectively and pin, then sew ends collectively.
You might be nearly there, so stick with me! You then lower a bit one and three/4inch by 1 and 1/2 sq. out of every nook of your little DIY Placemat Pouch
and pinch, pin, and stitch collectively like this photograph beneath.
I used to be so happy with the way in which these turned out, they have been all very skilled trying and didn’t look home-sewn in any respect, not that its a nasty factor to look home made its a really fascinating look in my view, however this has all of the bases coated, its very homey trying but in addition does have a store-bought high quality due to the placemats you’re utilizing. My plan is to carry them to my workplace Christmas social gathering and provides one to every of my workers stuffed with goodies. You possibly can even say it is a Christmas Wrapping, that’s what I might be utilizing them for. I can’t wait to see the seems to be on their faces after I give it to them, as a result of they’re all the time fawning over my stitching initiatives and begging me to make one thing for them. I really like making folks joyful and this undertaking definitely helped me try this.
