Add a vase of flowers and simple placemat on your Picnic Table Cover and you’ll have an outdoor dining experience! With this easy sewing project, you can mix and match a reversible placemat for each family member in no time at all. 


Supplies (for one placemat):

  • Babyville Black/White Chevron PUL - 13ʺ x 19ʺ
  • Babyville Forest Friends PUL - 13ʺ x 19ʺ
  • Coordinating FOE – 2 yards
  • Ball Point Pins
  • Regular sewing supplies

Instructions:

1. Pin PUL placemat pieces together, laminate sides facing. Using a bowl or plate, round each corner. Machine baste around placemat about 3/8ʺ from edge.

2. Leaving a 3ʺ beginning tail, encase the FOE over placemat edges and pin. Do not stretch.

3. Using a medium width three-step zigzag, stitch FOE around edges of placemat to attach. At the corner curves, stitch slowly and use the needle down, lifting and pivoting technique for ease of stitching.

4. About 3ʺ from starting point, stop stitching. Determine the amount of FOE needed to finish attaching and pin FOE ends, right sides together. Check to make sure this is correct, and re-pin to make any adjustments needed. Straight stitch FOE ends together and trim seam.

5. Refold FOE and continue adding FOE to placemat to finish binding.
