Christmas in July: Ornament placemat

DSCN7285                       Christmas in July project: I saw an idea on pinterest for an ornament placemat so I decided to try the idea.  I took a large plate for my pattern but drew the circle about 1 – 2 inches larger than the plate.  I used shape flex on the front and back of the placemat.  First try at the ornament holder on top was a holiday fabric.  Mary looked at the pillow and told me that the holder needed to be shiny.  So I found some shiny polyester fabric at the quilt shop to use for the holder.  I used shape flex on the back of this fabric too.  Now the ornament has a shiny holder on top.  If I make one more placemat, then I will have 2 placemats for the bar in our  kitchen.   A project for another day.  Keep on sewing!!    Donna            DSCN7289

  1. Very Cute, like the silver lame for the ornament topper. You need to make another one with Scotty Christmas fabric so Mary has one too 😉
