A few weeks ago, I bought a set of 6 vintage quilted placemats at the local thrift store for $2. I was drawn to the vintage floral pattern and had it in mind to reuse them in different craft projects.
I then sewed along the bottom of the third to create a long pocket for the iron.
I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out and glad that I got to reuse something and didn't have to buy a plastic protector to only throw in a landfill later. I look forward to using it on my trips and keeping my clothes safe from the heat of my hair fryer. Now as for the other 5 placemats... any ideas for what I should make with them?
