    Looks cute but I couldn't quite grasp it. I'll read it again later and maybe it will sink in.

    You are sewing each piece of fabric to two other pieces. If you could stand the placemat on edge & open it to a cross or an "X" you could see all four sides.

    I see a Christmas idea here. Thanks!

    I made a set of these and worked great. One side is Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter and everyday all in one.

    Thanks for the explanation - I needed that! I thought it was two lined ovals (double-faced), then lined up and sewed together down the middle. Hmmm, middle seam might be "ugly" when beginning to start and stop!

    Your explanation and the link will help me make lovely Christmas gifts!
