Today I'm going to show you how I made the Burlap & Lace placemats I shared with you here. They are an easy way to add some rustic charm to a place setting and would work so well for just about any holiday dinner party or wedding event.
Burlap and Lace Placemats
Burlap (1 1/2 yards will make about 8 placemats)
Sewing machine and coordinating thread
First start by cutting rectangular pieces of burlap measuring 13 x 17 inches.
And if you didn't already know, wondertape really is wonderful! It is basically double-sided sticky tape that washes away when you launder your project. You can usually find it in the quilting notions section of your local fabric store.
Once your trim is taped down, sew around all 4 edges of your lace trim and you are done! How pretty is that!
I just love the little bit of lace that peeks out from underneath the plate.
Now hop to it and make yourself a set of 6, 8, or 12 for your next dinner party, you will love how fast these are to whip up!
Thanks for stopping by today!
