Placemat Mania So much fabric, so little time. I chose to make a placemat for a local charity. The placemats are to be given out with their meal delivered in December. It was all from fabrics in my stash. I had an absolute blast creating something out of the small pieces, some odd shapes added a design opportunity. What started out with one, grew to two, then to three, and then a whole pile of fabric to keep going for more.
