Today hubby and I went to Walmart where I found some awesome scraps in the remnants bin. I got 3/4 yrd of this plastic tablecloth material for only 49 cents.
I cut it into 4 equal pieces. Then I matched them up wrong sides facing and bound the edges with purple electrical tape (compliments of my electrical engeneer husband) These made 2 nice sized, fun, placemats.
I think I may send them to my niece who has two daughters.
