I love making placemats. They’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 I’ve been throwing in new ones every now and then for them as a little surprise here and there. I guess it’s sort of like a crafty-momma’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 daughter’s enjoying their lunches with their new friends, Fox and Panda! Click here for a PDF of the pattern pieces.
