Here are the placemats. I have just one to go as I ran out of binding. My challenge will be to finish that last one and not leave it sitting there, lonley in my sewing room for 5 years!
This was my ingenious idea . . . I have one child that just can't keep food on his plate and makes an awful mess when he eats. Last time I made mats, I didn't even make him one, as it would have been putrid after one meal.
This time, I had a "lightbulb moment"
I backed his placemat with the PVC coated fabric. I put a different binding on it so we can tell when it's the other way around. When he has a meal, he just turns it over, and then has to wipe it clean.
So far so good - I was pretty pleased with myself.
