1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Placemats on: July 25, 2006 05:32:43 PM
I am thinking about making placemats for my mother.  We a ton of fabric placemats, but I doubt we have a perfect matching set.  When she has company over,  a third of them get old duck placemats, a third get pink stripes, and the last third get funky summer stripes.  It's a bit embarrassing.

What fabrics make good placemats?  I would like something sturdy. Cotton?  Upholstery fabric?  I don't know where to start.

Do you have any good design patterns or suggestions?

Quilling is the art of rolling paper into different shapes and placing those shapes into a meaningful design.  Most craft stores sell the strips of paper and the slotted tool or a thin needle.


As for a tutorial, you don't even need the slotted tool.  Just pinch 1/8in pieces of paper together until you have made the wings (make four). Glue the pinched part together.  Wrap another 1/8in piece of paper around a needle or toothpick to make the spiral.  Glue the wings and the body onto a piece of paper, at some tiny antenna.  Done.

Quilling is becoming my favorite hobby.

A friend of mine went into "Fabric Warehouse" on Transit Road and it was more upholstery and interior design fabrics.  While the prices were reasonable for that, she said wasn't really a lot in the terms of fabric for clothing and the like.

Where exactly is Ravenlore Yarn in Tonawanda?  I've never heard of it.

There's another yarn shop called Yarn It All on Campbell Blvd in Pendleton (near Lockport). They have a lot of specials going on each day and workshops/classes on certain days of the month too.
