Joy at Spool, who brought us the awesome Placemat Clutch project is proving to be a ninja of placemat transformation and has created a fabulous project: Placemat Expanding File. Joy says: “This project is extremely quick. Reading the directions will probably take longer than sewing it up!”

You can find lots of pretty placemats at the dollar store that are perfect for this project!


Project Estimate:

  • Four placemats, $1
  • 1 yard of 1″ wide reversible trim, $1

Total cost: $5
