Patchwork Placemats {Intro}

Hi guys!

I recently did a custom order inspired by my patchwork mug rugs… patchwork placemats. I thought these would make a wonderful beginner project. So … I’m going to give you a quick introduction to the full DIY post I’ll be sharing later this month {May 30}. As with my previous posts, my goal is to give you the confidence to give sewing a try and ENJOY it. Or if you already sew, the encouragement to not just dream of projects, but actually SEW them! The patchwork placemats are::

  • Perfect for a beginner … lots of straight line sewing
  • Quick … even quicker if you already sew
  • Fun … a relatively easy and quick project that you can smile at and enjoy every day!

If you want to gather supplies {to make 4 placemats) to be ready for the detailed DIY post, you’ll need::

  • 4 Print Fabrics {1/4YD each}
  • 1 Back/Binding Fabric {1 YD}
  • Cotton Batting {enough for (4) 13×18 rectangles}
  • Coordinating Thread

┬áThat’s it! See you in two weeks with a project that I hope you’ll love. For more Knitty Bitties, you can find me rambling on my Blog; trying to keep connected on Facebook; tweeting on Twitter and most assuredly pinning on Pinterest! Or check out my previous 30days posts here.

Andrea of Knitty Bitties is a blessed wife and mama who gets to spend her days sewing and sipping iced tea. She also loves to bake ... which led to running, but now she loves that too! Join her over at her blog for a whole lotta happy!
