Easy and durable placemats from Annie Unrein!

Are you looking for a quick way to spice up your dining room table, or to personalize each family member’s spot? Annie Unrein from ByAnnie.com is in the studio today giving us easy-to-do placemat tutorials, using the Soft and Stable Project Pack, that you can completely customize!

The key ingredient that makes these placemats durable is the Soft and Stable Project Pack! Watch our video tutorial to see what a difference it makes, and get some tips and tricks for making your own placemat! Bonus: this free pattern comes on the back of your Soft and Stable Project Pack! A two-for-one deal!

We loved these placemats sew much that we just had to make some for ourselves! Kimberly made one for each of her children, with fabric that they each picked out! We love the unique touches and personality that these will bring to the table!
Next we have a beautiful, floral, four-piece set stitched in Wonderful Things by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics!

This set was made using Raindrop Metallic Teal and From Porto with Love Metallic Blue Sardinha from Cotton + Steel, mixed with Metallic Yard Dyed Essex Linen from Robert Kaufman!

We have even more placemat pattern from ByAnnie if you want to mix it up! All of these patterns use the Soft and Stable product!

  1. Kimberly,
    I have been searching the last couple of weeks for the pink/blue fabric you used in your placemat. I know it's an older fabric but I just need the name please. I saw it made up into a dress and it was beautiful just like your placemat. Anyone out there know what this line is called? I would be grateful for the help.
