I have been working on these pet placemats for about five days. The idea came to me when I was sorting through my fabric, matching up what I thought went together.
I knew what I wanted them to look like so I got started. Cutting, sewing and quilting.
My least favorite task was sewing the binding on the backside. By hand. It is a snooze inducer. I fell asleep several times. But finally finished the last one sometime today.
I saw quite a few pet placemats on Etsy and knew mine needed to stand out from the crowd. So… I added a few embellishments. A ring to go around a rolled up placemat. With fabric dogs and dangling charms.
Each placemat measures approximately 18″ by 14″. And is reversible.
The red doggy fabric is called Whiskers and Tails. By Lorilynn Simms for the Robert Kaufman Co. Paw print fabric was a Fat Quarter and the other two, not sure, but I bought them by the yard. All fabric came from JoAnn’s.
I really enjoyed making these placemats. I am going to make up more. Think Christmas presents!!
