I love making placemats. Theyâ€™re quick, useful, and so much fun to customize to my liking!
Both of my girls have to bring a placemat with them to lunch everyday, so Iâ€™ve been throwing in new ones every now and then for them as a little surprise here and there. I guess itâ€™s sort of like a crafty-mommaâ€™s surprise love note tucked into a bag lunch!
For each of them, I used a fat quarter as the base, then added simple applique to bring out those cuddly animal faces. I can just imagine my daughterâ€™s enjoying their lunches with their new friends, Fox and Panda!Â Click here for a PDF of the pattern pieces.
