Christmas Placemats

Wow, the holidays are HERE! A week from today is Thanksgiving, that's crazy! I'm so not prepared. I believe the holidays are a procrastinator's worst nightmare (at least they are mine). I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet :(
I know, I know, I need to get on that.
But for now I have a project for you!

How about some Christmas placemats?! They can help add some Christmas cheer to your table!

What you will need:
Red, Yellow and Green Fabric
Heat N Bond
Bias Tape

I ironed the heat n bond to the fabric before I cut it
*I used my Go! Baby to cut the Christmas Trees, and my Silhouette for the stars*
I then cut squares from the HoHoHo fabric for the background on the tree (this was a last minute decision so I don't have pictures.
I then cut 8 pieces of 11 x 17 pieces of the muslin (you 2 pieces per placemat, one for the top and one for the bottom)
And cut 4 pieces of  11 x 17 pieces of the felt.
Iron the trees and the stars onto the background pieces
Then sew them down to the background piece
 Next sew the piece to the corner of one piece of muslin
 Sandwich the piece of felt in between a piece of muslin and the piece of muslin with the tree on it and pin the bias tape around the entire placemat
 And sew it down
 That's it!
You're done! :)
