I think I'm officially addicted to making placemat purses. This is my second one, and I'm already planning a third..I'm going to attempt a placemat diaper bag. I guess this would be more of a placemat tote bag, but it was fun and easy, so it doesn't really matter. I bought these placemats at Wal-Mart for $1.50 each, and the pack of 2 coordinating napkins for $2.50 I think. I used a piece of one napkin for the inside pocket, and haven't decided what to do with the other napkin. Maybe more pockets?

Nice job, I really like the french seams (they do come in handy.) In addition to making more pockets, can you make handles with the material from the napkins? That might look cool.

Very cute bag!  Placemats are definitely nice and sturdy, but a pain to stitch through, sometimes  Sad   This is a great Summer bag!

Also I  found that if I  undo the  hem that is already on the placemat  that I get a better end result in how it  lays... a few  minutes  with the  seem ripper is all it  takes  and  then you have a  better seam allowance also..  good  luck
