Placemats are incredibly easy to make and are a perfect project for beginner sewers looking to update their kitchen decor.

To make four placemats, you need one yard of 54-inch wide home decor fabric. If you want to make them double-sided for extra versatility, get two half-yard cuts of home decor fabric and use different fabrics on each side. 

And unlike other video tutorials that involve lots of work in between shots, I completed one placemat in 10 minutes. So you'll be able to crank out a set of four in an hour or less.
