Hi there, Amy from Sew Incredibly Crazy here to bring you placemats to add to your table. I am a wee bit Irish, so I thought it would be extra fun to have these cuties on my table for St. Patrick’s Day.
Clover Placemats Supplies (for 4 placemats)
HeatnBond High Loft Fusible Fleece – 1 1/2 Yards
HeatnBond Lite or EZ Print Lite Sheets
4 – 12 1/2″ x 14 1/2″ pieces of green gingham fabric
24 – 2 1/2″ green fabric squares
4 – 6″ green fabric squares for clovers
4 – 16″ x 20″ pieces of fabric for the backing – cut larger for quilting
Coordinating Aurifil Thread
2 yards coordinating Jumbo Ric Rac
Strips for binding
~This is a great project to use mini charms, leftover jelly roll pieces or charm squares~
Clover Placemat Pattern Directions
Take 6 of the 2 1/2″ squares and sew them together, as shown below. Repeat 3 more times.
Take one of the 12 1/2″ x 14 1/2″ pieces of green gingham fabric. Sew it to the right side of the strip created, like shown below. Repeat 3 more times.
Yielding 4 placemats. Iron a piece of HeatnBond Fusible Fleece to the back of each of the placemats. Put the backing fabric behind the fusible fleece, making a quilt sandwich.
Quilt as desired. Sew the Jumbo ricrac over the seam of the 2 1/2″ square and the 12 1/2″ x 14 1/2″ pieces.
With the HeatnBond Lite, trace the clover pattern. Cut a 1/4″ from pattern and iron to the wrong side of the green 6″ square.
Cut out the clover around the drawn line. Remove paper backing and iron to the desired location on the placemat. Keep 1/2″ from the edge.
Machine or hand stitch around the clover.
After completed, bind and Enjoy.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all you wee little Leprechauns out there!!
