I have been looking through the sewing idea books and manuals that I want to use with the girls to teach them how to sew. One of them had placemat purses to sew. I had picked up a couple simple placemats at the thrift store and decided to see how easy they would be for the girls to try.
I checked out several websites that listed instructions for ideas and found them quite simple and easy to put together. Fortunately I had a roll of green webbing that matched the bags and so it was all done within an hour.
I don't know how the pictures turned out blue, but the fabric is forest green and white. I also put in a little long pocket for their pencils and what-nots.
