Easy Placemat Purse

By:

This project from Beacon Adhesives is so neat that it can be used as a purse and a placemat for eating. Try not to get it too dirty though because you'll want to take it out with you for the night.
 


 

Materials:

  • FABRI-TAC GLUE
  • 20” bamboo or fabric placemat of your choice.
  • 1” wide canvas webbing fabric for handle, 2 pieces each 30” long. Use any coordinating color to your placemat.
  • Medium size rickrack in a coordinating color.
  • 1/2” wide polka dot grosgrain ribbon, or other decorative ribbon.
  • Six fabric daisies or other embellishments of choice.
  • Clips or spring-type clothes pins

 

Instructions:

  1. Fold each 30” canvas handle in half. Glue handles to the inside of the placemat with the FABRI-TAC GLUE and hold in place with the clips until dry.
     
  2. Allow handles to dry for at least 12 hours. With FABRI-TAC, glue along the inside right and left edges of the placemat, fold over, and gentle press to form purse. Hold edges together with clips while drying.
     
  3. Cut lengths of polka dot ribbon and glue to front of purse as in photo. Repeat on the back if desired. Glue similar lengths of rickrack to purse, one above the ribbon and one below.
     
  4.  Attach six fabric flowers between the ribbons. Let everything dry at least overnight before using.
