Valentine's Heart Placemats
Project by The Crafty Lass
You Will Need
Bosal Foam and Fibre Wadding
Iron and Ironing Board
How to Make
Select and press your fabrics before cutting out two 34cm x 42cm pieces of fabric per placemat that you would like to make. You will also need two pieces of wadding at the same size.
Place your fabric pieces right sides together and the wadding on top. Pin together if you would like to keep secure.
Using a 1cm seam allowance, sew all around the edge leaving a gap to turn out the right way.
4. TURN OUT
Turn out the right way and secure your threads.
5. SEW – EDGE
Using a 1cm seam allowance, sew all around the edge.
Cut out a heart shape template – the easiest way to get an even heart is to fold a piece of paper, draw one side, cut out and unfold.
7. HEART – SEW
Pin your heart template onto the mat in the middle before sewing around the edge. I found this easiest using the machine at a very slow pace! Secure your threads.
Et voila! A padded heart placemat… Enjoy!
