I’m not really a formalities kinda gal. I like pretty stuffs and want things to look nice, even when having a good meal. When my buddies Jen and Kelly asked me to join them in a table scape blog party, I had nothing. Like seriously. So I decided to make my own no sew placemats. They’re super easy and only take a few minutes to make, so even if you’ve got no time to craft, you might could still squeeze these in!
To make No Sew Placemats, you will need:
- felt by the yard, cut to 12×18 inches per placemat (Online Fabric Store has tons of colors!)
- one 12 inch piece of studded trim per placemat
- hot glue and a hot glue gun
- seamstress chalk
First cut your pieces and get everything ready to glue together.
Cut each of your pieces of trim in half, so you have two rows of two studs. You’ll use one for each side of the placemat.
Use the marking chalk to mark a line 3/4 of an inch from the edge, then 1/4 an inch past that one. so from the edge to the second line will be 1 inch. Do it on each side of the placemat. (PS – if you make a mistake, you can rub the felt and the chalk comes right off.)
Using hot glue, run a line down the line and glue down the trim. Only do a few inches at a time or the glue will cool too quickly. And be sure to pat the trim, not rub it or it will make a big mess. Think oozing up through the cracks – not good.
When the strips are down on both sides, your no sew placemats are done!
