Materials for Homemade Reversible Placemats and Cloth Napkins:

  • (2) Fat Quarters 22″ x18″= (1) placemat 12″ x 18″ & (2) napkins 9″ x 9″
  • 11 3/4″ x 17 3/4″ batting or fusible fleece
  • Coordinating thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • Pins
  • Iron
  • Ironing board/mat
  • Acrylic ruler 6”x24
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Marking tool

Step-By-Step Instructions for Reversible Placemats and Napkins:

  1. Iron your fat quarter if needed. Using a ruler and a marking tool, mark these lines on both fat quarters.
  2. Using your fabric scissors cut your pieces. Repeat on your other fat quarter and your batting (only for the placemat).

3. Stack (2) placemat pieces right sides together, and the batting on the top. Pin in place.

4. Place napkin pieces right sides together and pin in place.

5. Sew using a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving a 2-3″ opening to turn out later. Do this for both napkins and the placemat.

6. Clip corners to minimize bulk.

7. Turn your placemat, and (2) napkins right side out.

8. Press your placemat and napkins with your iron and fold in the raw edges of the opening.

9. To finish topstitch a 1/4″ seam allowance all the way around, closing the opening as you go. Repeat with the placemat and both napkins. Make sure to backstitch at the beginning and end.
