Do you have some jelly roll fabric strips lying around in your sewing room? If so, this is the perfect project for you. These mini placemats were designed with jelly rolls in mind. The 2.50″ fabric strips are stitched together on your embroidery machine. The decorative stitches between the individual strips look like hand embroidery, but they, too, get stitched on the embroidery machine. In the right lower corner is an applique design — a cross on one and a bunny on the other. There is a third version with no design in the lower right corner. This version can be used for any occasion or season.
In all, there are 3 mini placemats in your download. They are about half the size of a regular placemat and quite a bit larger than our 5×7″ mug rugs. The mats accommodate a dessert plate and mug easily.
Roll up the mats and place them in a lunch bag. Given the right fabrics, these would make great teacher’s gifts, too.
The mini placemats are completely stitched as an in the hoop project. There is no other sewing machine or hand stitching required.
The designs come with detailed instructions (including photos) in pdf format.
