How to Make It:
  1. For each place mat, cut a red felt rectangle a size that fits your table. Cut a green felt rectangle 1 inch larger on all sides.
  2. Enlarge the holly leaf patterns; cut out the patterns. Pin the patterns to a corner of the red felt rectangle; cut out to make openings.
  3. Cut 1/2-inch-diameter circles from red felt; tack them in place with red embroidery floss, tying knots with short tails on each berry. Trim the floss ends.
  4. Use embroidery floss and needle to sew a running stitch through the center of each holly leaf.
  5. Center the red wool layer on the green rectangle; topstitch the layers together.
