I cut two pieces of coordinating fabric measuring 14.5″x11.5″ and lightweight interfacing measuring 14″x11″. I then cut a smaller piece of fabric for the pocket – big enough for the spoon and fork. I ironed on the interfacing to one of the pieces of fabric and then sewed both printed fabrics right-sides together adding ribbon on the side for it to roll up and tie with. Leaving a little opening for the fabric to be turned inside out with, I then did so and whip stitched it closed. A quick topstitch around the sides, I finished the placemat by stitching the pocket to one side.
Fabric from Jo-Anns: Multi Dots and Black Cats.
