I have been lusting after some linen placemats for quite a while now, namely those by Fog Linen. The thing is, I really couldn't justify paying $16 each for placemats...especially when:
- I can sew
- I have kids
- I can't afford to spend $16 plus shipping on placemats
Back to the placemats...

Here is the 6oz weight, marked out into 39cm x 49cm rectangles. I used a pencil because my fabric chalk wasn't showing up on it. I cut it with scissors because my cutting mat isn't big enough.
