I finished one of these placemats awhile ago and now it's 1 down, 3 to go. Our placemats have seen better days so I really need to get on the stick and finish them. These are kind of fun. And yes, the yello marking line has not yet been washed away.
In our sewing group, Lynn taught us a 4-in-1 placemat. Lots of fun and as it turns out, really easy. Just takes four different fabrics and you have four different placemats all in one.
