The Ribbon Panel — EZPZ Placemat

Spring is in the air…sew…I was re-organizing some things and found a bunch of grosgrain ribbon in pretty, Spring-like colors.

I couldn’t help myself, I just had to make something.  Here’s what I came up with in like 30 seconds (this is FAST):


How I did it:

I measured 1.25″ in from each outside edge and marked it lightly. Then I cut colored ribbon to desired length. My panel is 15″ x 19″ so I cut two colors 15″ long and two colors 19″ long.
I placed the outside edge of the ribbon along (just barely covering) the lightly marked placement line. Then, I pinned well.

Finally, I top-stitched both long edges of the ribbon.

Whew, that was FAST…and fun.  I love grosgrain ribbon!!!

Now, all I need to do is follow my instructions found in my EZPZ Fast & Fab Reversible Placemats sewing pattern to turn my panel into a professionally finished reversible placemat.

This would be super easy to customize to any dining table or decor…just pick the colors you need. Oh goodness, it doesn’t get much easier!
