These Denim Place Mats are very easy to make. The pocket holds the silverware & the loop holds the napkin!
They’re perfect for a picnic setting or casual tablescape.
What you’ll need:
1 yard of Denim fabric
2 old pairs of jeans
Sewing Machine & thread (although you could hand sew it)
Washing Machine & Dryer
Cut Loops & pockets off of the old jeans.
Cut out the backs of the pockets.
(The reason for cutting out the back of the pockets is because the denim will fray.)
Cut the denim using the “No Sew Place Mat Pattern“
Once the place mats are cut out, use a plate to find the placement for the pockets & loops.
Once you’ve found the placement that you like, pin the pocket & loop in place.
Sew the loop & pocket in place.
Once the pieces are sewn in place, you want to put them into the washing machine.
Now don’t panic. The place mats will come out of the washer looking like a huge, jumbled mess. This should be expected.
Using the scissors, cut the place mats apart.
Trim the long,stringy edges from the place mats.
Once all of the strings are trimmed away, put the place mats into the dryer. The edges of the place mats will be curled upwards.
Iron the edges of the place mats until they lay smoothly.
And you’re finished!
Now they’re ready to be used!
Happy Creating everyone!
