Paper to Fabric

placemats1
I had an idea to turn a vintage paper placemat into something that could be used again and again, and of course Spoonflower helped make my idea a reality! You could really do this with any vintage paper placemats you might be holding onto…Christmas, Easter, you name it! Just scan the paper one and upload it to Spoonflower. You can find this one here. It’s intended to be printed on the linen cotton canvas, a fat quarter gives you two placemats, and a whole yard is enough to make 8 (or four double sided).
You could hem the edges, or as I did sandwich them with some white fleece and a backing fabric to give them a nice quilted feel.
I know its just Sept 3rd, but I wanted to post this so there is time to get your fabric & placemats sewn up before October begins :)
