Show off your sewing skills with a set of custom-made placemats just bursting with holiday spirit!
Dear Sewing Superstar,
Getting ready for the holiday season? Make each seat at the table special with your own beautiful placemats. Our Merry and Bright Machine Embroidered Placemats feature festive words like Merry, Jolly, and more to bring the holiday spirit to your table. These pieced placemats combine applique and machine embroidery, creating a feast for the eyes with their bright and cheerful designs.
Make these stunning placemats using in-the-hoop embroidery. The embroidery designs come in a zip file along with an info sheet so you can plan your color changes (and make sure you have enough of each color!). When you piece it all together, you get beautiful placemats unlike anything you’ll find at the store.
Get out your most festive holiday-themed fat quarters (or even colorful scraps) to make your holiday words to applique. Each word features delicate machine embroidery around the edges to make the words really stand out. The best approach for this project is to go all-in with festive color for your words and embroidery, and keep the background fabric simple. That will show off your stitch work to its best advantage.
You’ll use the machine embroidery files to create the beautiful and intricate border for each placemat. These delicate designs create the perfect framing for your holly-jolly words! Just imagine how these placemats will add extra cheer to your holiday table.
No two placemats will be the same (unless you want them to be), so your creative possibilities are virtually endless! You can mix and match colors, patterns, and words to create a set of placemats that are uniquely yours!
Our Merry and Bright Machine Embroidered Placemats project is rated intermediate, and you do need access to an embroidery machine to make the intricate borders. The pattern includes everything you need: step-by-step instruction, detailed pattern templates, pattern notes, and a complete list of the tools and materials you need to succeed. Once you make one set of these, you’ll probably want to make more for family and friends.
