the simple life placemats

I bought this fabric a while ago.
I knew I wanted to fussy cut those cute little kids to make something.
I finally decided on some placemats for my girls.

I opened up the scrap bins and started pulling fabric that matched the fussy cut squares.
I then started sewing to create these patchwork blocks - turned placemats.
Three placemats - one for each girl.

After I took these pictures, I then put some iron-on vinyl over them so they are easy to keep clean.

The girls have each claimed their own - funny how that happens even though I didn't put names on them. :)

  1. oh cute! I imagine the girls were thrilled!

  2. Those place mats look great!If I was eating on them, I'd probably scoot it up above my plate so I could look at it while I eat!

  3. Adorable! Bet your girls will love meal times now that they have those to use.

  4. These are adorable...I love how you pieced these together.

  5. I'm with JHNickodemus. I wouldn't get much eating done because I'd be too busy admiring the placemat!
