Are you one for decorating your table according to Holidays or seasons then here is a great tutorial that is so fast and easy for Autumn or Thanksgiving with some beautiful fall leaves on it. It uses very little fabric and you can use ribbon or embellishments on the placemats to make it your own. I love it. Make some for family and friends too. Great to bring to a family dinner or reunion.
