This bag of scraps was my inspiration for these Christmas place mats. I have been making place mats for my daughter and this is my 5Th set. I am trying to make her one set for each month as a wedding gift. So far, I have summer mats with a lemon theme, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Autumn sunflowers,valentines and now Christmas. I still need to make January mats(Ideas welcome). Easter mats. 4Th of July mats and of course some John Deere mats for her future husband.
Step 1: Each mat requires 16 -3.5x4.5 rectangles
step 2: Connect 4 rectangles by the short end. Do this 4 times and you will have 4 strips.
