placemats, take 2

she loves her placemats, but I can’t wash them fast enough to send them back to school, especially if she has 2 days back-to-back of either meat or dairy. So I just whipped up two more, using fabric from my stash and the iron-on interfusing. No sew! I know, it’s sort of lame, but she’s got the coolest placemats in the class and the teachers love the fact that they roll up into her lunch box, so they don’t have to do the wiping!

Picture_075 you might recognize the fabric on the top one, it’s an old skirt i had already repurposed as an apron. And the bottom fabric is vintage, from an Ebay purchase my husband did a while back. I couldn’t think of what to do with it (It was a single, small curtain panel), so I just cut a corner out of it.

    Wow, those are cute. You’re a good mom to dip into your ubercute stash for placemats. If I was wearing a hat, I would take it off to you. Very, very cute!

    Yay ubercrafty is back! I like these placemats. I hate the big plastic ones that never feel clean and don’t fit anywhere I try to store them. Great idea these rolly uppy ones and very cute.
