This is a quick and easy no-sew project that anyone can do.
Materials and Tools needed:
Use your seam ripper to open your grain sack into one long piece.
if you would like a visual on how to open your grain sack into one long piece, go here.
Cut out a rectangle that's 19" x 14".
Make sure to cut off any hemmed sides.
Leaving a hemmed side will prevent you from getting that raw-edge look.
To achieve the raw-edge look simply throw the placemats into the washing machine.
Here's a little tip: if desired, use a pin to pull out more thread and if necessary use scissors to trim any unwanted thread.
i tied the placemats together with some thread and replaced a traditional bow with an old enamel clock face.
Wouldn't these make a lovely handmade gift?
Happy Tuesday my friends!
until next time,
