Valentine's Heart Placemats

Project by The Crafty Lass


You Will Need

Fabric

Thread

Bosal Foam and Fibre Wadding


Craft Essentials

Sewing Machine

Fabric Scissors

Pins

Tape Measure

Iron and Ironing Board



How to Make

1. CUT

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.



2. LAYER

Place your fabric pieces right sides together and the wadding on top. Pin together if you would like to keep secure.


3. SEW

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.


6. HEART

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!
