Christmas Felt Place Mat for a Cranberry Table Setting
Make this red and green felt place mat to accent a Christmas table setting decorated with cranberries and fresh evergreens.
What You'll Need:
Red and green felt
Embroidery floss to match red felt
Sewing thread to match red felt
Download holly leaf pattern
How to Make It:
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.
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.
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.
Use embroidery floss and needle to sew a running stitch through the center of each holly leaf.
Center the red wool layer on the green rectangle; topstitch the layers together.
