    I'm sorry I don't understand what you are asking.

    There was a topic about four-sided placemats a couple of days ago.

    sorry I couldn't find the topic so started a new one. I didn't understand how to sew the placemat pieces. it says half way around and didn't know if you sewed on the same half all the time

    I didn't understand it, either.

    So I decided it would be easier to make two placemats.

    I looked at the photos on the other thread. I could not access the directions.

    There are 4 equal ovals of fabric 1, 2, 3, 4. Each have a left hand side & a right hand side.

    You sew
    1R to 2L
    2R to 3L
    3R to 4L
    4R to 1L

    So, that is halfway around, 4 times. Follow the directions for turning.

    Easier, maybe sew halfway around 1 and 2
    half way around 3 and 4

    open the unsewed sides of both, attach 1 to 4 and 2 to 3.
