Project 5: Sewing Placemats

Sewn Happy Birthday placemat

This is one of the most customizable projects in the challenge- placemats personalized with photos! This project is great because, while it may look easy, you will be learning and trying out several new techniques.

In this project you will learn how to print photos onto fabric and get tips on the different types of photo printer fabric available. You are also going to learn how to do free motion stitching- which is where the real fun begins! If you’ve never used free motion stitching, decorative stitches can be used as well, however we encourage you to step outside your comfort zone and try something new! Like always, don’t forget to post photos of your finished placemats to the Facebook group page!
