Coloring Placemats!

Coloring Placemats!

After making one reusable coloring book with fabric, which was very labor intensive and costly to make ( I was planning to make several for the littles in my family) I decided to make Coloring Placemats instead!

Use washable markers to color the placemats!

Then toss them in the washer and start all over again!

All clean after washing!

They are a big hit. The kids pick their favorite designs and when they spill on them, the milk stays on the placemat instead of running off like on a vinyl one. So, the request was to make more, big surprise, so they could have some in the washer and some on the table! Obviously, I’m always looking for fun projects to use fabric and batting scraps! I’m using the same method as the Hot Pad Table Runners so they sew together quickly. And I’m using whatever batting scraps I have, usually Quilters Dream Poly Select, white.

Another design, no coloring required!

Here’s an example using some fun eye spy fabric!

Hope you have a happy and safe holiday filled with crafting and stitching!
