Placemats are the ultimate table setting convenience. It's such a pain to have to wash the same table cloth over and over, and they never seem to fit the table quite right, besides. Make the switch to homemade placemats to save yourself the hassle and to show off your sewing skills. Rebecca Ruth Designs makes placemat projects a cinch.

Pretty & Pleasing Placemats

This pattern is really two designs in one: a bordered placemat and a striped placemat. Both designs, when finished, measure 14 inches across and 16 inches from top to bottom. Pretty & Pleasing Placemats are simple hexagons that look great with all table settings. Go for a crisp, clean look and make the bordered placemats in blue and white–a great color combination for summers at the lake house. Or, spice things up with striped fabric in earth tones. This alternate design is reminiscent of an optical illusion. It looks like it's made of fabric strips that have been tied together, yet blend seamlessly into one another. Perfect for patio tables, this style is a ideal for people who want to give off a natural vibe.


Easy & Elegant Placemats

Take a weekend to whip up a new set of placemats for your kitchen table. Easy & Elegant Placemats come in two styles: Open Star and Twined Ribbon. Open Star has an edgier look that suits modern dining rooms, while Twined Ribbon is a vintage-inspired design that looks right at home in a rustic kitchen. Both patterns measure 16 inches across and 14 inches from top to bottom, which means that they comfortably fit charger plates as well as everyday dishware. This pattern comes with detailed directions for paper piecing your way to a stunning placemat. Step by step illustrations and photos make it easy for beginners to polish off a pair of placemats in no time.
