|My new TX friend, Sonia, with her new potluck placemats|
Utensils go in the pockets. Then I sewed a ribbon across the front of the pocket to put a napkin. I sewed ribbons on the side so the mats can be rolled up and carried to potluck.
|first, get the type of placemat that will roll up easily & go thru a sewing machine|
and a cordinating fat quarter or scrap, and matching ribbon
|cut part of fat quarter and press edges under, then stitch around edge, and stitch 2 vertical rows on top|
|Like so (you can see stitches here). Then sew a piece of ribbon horizontally across top to hold napkin|
|sew ribbon on one side of placemat to use as a tie|
|and there's your potluck placemat!|
3-6-13: Today in crafts at JCRV, the ladies made their own Potluck Placemats from Dee's pattern.
