Today for day four of Craft Lightning Patriotic series I am thrilled to share this easy project for felt firecracker placemats. I love working with felt and am proud to be on the Kunin Group Dream Team sharing felt projects a couple of times a month. This one is already a fave of mine.
You really only need felt and a way to put it together, I sewed mine on my bestest machine ever, my Baby Lock Melody, but you could use fabric glue too.
The base is a piece of blue eco-fi Plus cut to 18 x 9 inches. It is so easy to cut with my new Olfa rotary cutter and mat that I got from Nancy’s Notions when I took a sewing class at SNAP Conference.
I got these scissors from Nancy’s Notions and I am serious when I say that they are life changing. Cutting felt can be a task but these cut through four pieces at a time like butter.
I added stripes and dots in red and white with zig zag stitching. Ta Da! I love them with the drinks in mason jars.
There are so many fantastic projects today in this series.
