Handmade Fabric Table Mat Tutorial

Hello lovelies, Hope you are well. I have been busy working on a brand new project which I am so excited about and will be sharing it with you soon. But in the meantime I am catching up on sharing with you all my latest sewing projects like the pretty fabric placemats I made for my Mum using the Gutermann ornament bird fabric in pastel violet which looks great in her purple colour accented kitchen. To give the placemats a lovely weight and padded feel I used the Vlieseline batting H 640 which is their thickest iron-on volume fleece, Here's my Handmade Fabric Table Mat Tutorial...

    Step 2

    Place the interlining with the coated side on the wrong side of the front fabric panel. Cover with a damp cloth and press each area for about 15 seconds, without pushing the iron. Allow the pieces to cool flat for about 30 minutes, so that the adhesive can set properly.

    Place the back panel wrong sides together with the front panel so that the wadding is sandwiched between the two. Pin to secure in place
