These fun pinwheel placemats are a terrific project to complete with fabric scraps you might have lying around!
All set to see how these are made? Let’s get started!
For this project, you will need…
Fusible web, such as Wonder Under
Fabric scraps in various prints
Paper and paper trimmer
Disappearing ink marker
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Ribbon and/or rick-rack
Bamboo placemats (I found mine in the Dollar Spot at Target)
step 1 / Use your paper trimmer to make square templates of various sizes. I found that squares of 4″, 3″ and 2.5″ work well. Fuse contrasting pieces of your scrap fabric together, wrong sides facing, following the instructions for your fusible web. Use your disappearing ink marker to trace your square templates onto your fused fabric pieces, and cut your squares out. (You will need three squares of descending sizes for each placemat.) Using your ruler, draw lines diagonally through the center of your squares with your disappearing ink marker, as shown.
step 2 / Use your scissors to snip about 2/3 of length of the lines you just drew, as shown.
Aren’t these little guys so festive and fun?
