It has been awhile since I made a new Placemat Project. Did you know this is the 12th different placemat project I have released? That’s right, there are a lot of other placemat projects such as the wallet, project bag, the original box bag, the simple zipper pouch and so many others. You can find the comlete Placemat Pouch Playlist here.
I think this just might be my favorite version. It’s practical, it’s simple and it’s cute! It stands up on it’s own. The structure of the placemat makes the inside remain wide open for easy access. It is also perfect for embroidery, but that is totally optional. This version is perfect for toys, makeup, craft projects, school projects and so much more.
You can see I made two versions. One with a handle so you can carry it like a tote bag, and one without. I think both are equally cute and serve a purpose. I picked up the Pioneer Woman placemats and napkins at Walmart.
I’ve made a step by step tutorial for this easy sew bag. You can view it below. Leave me a comment and let me know if you’ve tried any of the placemat projects and, if so, which is your favorite?
