Placemats are a great beginner sewing project. They’re easy to sew using only straight seams. Heather Handmade has a tutorial showing how you can sew a placemat. Each placemat takes 1/2 yard of fabric plus interfacing. You can make a set of matching placemats for every seat at the table, or make each one different for a fun, mix and match style.
