Quilted Christmas Placemat with Napkin


Step One - Draw image of 3D box and cut out shapes in 3 shades of fabric.
(boldest as main box, lighter on top, darker on side)

Step Two - Iron onto fusible flannel, slightly overlapping material.

Step Three - Cut out strips of complimentary fabric to serve as ribbons and pin in place.

Step Four - Stitch around the ribbon fabric and along the areas the red fabric meets.

Step Five - Cut a stip of ribbon fabric a half inch wider than needed.  Press and sew 1/4 inch on each side.

Step Six - Hand stitch the loop in place along the top ribbon line.

Step Seven - Cut out backing material and sew to the trimmed placemat, right sides together.

Step Eight - With wrong sides together, sew two rectangle pieces of fabric together, turn right side out and stitch along the edges.

Step Nine - Fold the napkin and place inside the loop to serve as the bow to the present.

I wish I could take total credit for it, but actually I saw the idea in an old Christmas book my step-mom gave me. The directions were way complicated so I just free handed it instead and it worked out fine. Thanks for the lovely compliment, though!
