This placemat was inspired by one I saw at a friend’s house. I used felt to make it a quick last-minute project to decorate my kids’ Thanksgiving table. This project can be done on the machine or by hand. I stitched it up by hand.
This makes enough for 3 placemats.
½ yard dark red felt (72” wide)
¼ yard dark brown felt (72” wide)
3 9” x 12” pieces of tan felt
Remnants of black, red, and gold felt
