They’re Attractive and Functional!
These clever placemats are perfect for picnics, and any time you’ll be taking food to eat away from home. For example, stick one in your bag for lunch at your desk or at quilt group.
Place utensils and the matching napkin in the pocket, roll them up and tie for secure transport. They look nice while tied, too, and will be lovely on a patio buffet.
Choose two fabrics, as the designer did, and a third for the matching napkins. They’re super easy to make and you can have a set of 4 done in just a few hours.
The finished placemats, from Erica at 5 Little Monsters, are 18″ x 12″. The napkin are 14″ x 14″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
