Burlap placemats with manners

I saw this idea when my MIL and I were perusing the streets of Homewood, AL on the boutique strip...they were so overpriced and I thought huh, it's worth a shot. I made six, each with a different manner, phrase, or reminder: give thanks, pass the rolls, eat your peas, say excuse me, elbows off the table, and finish your food. The kids like reading them, and they are good reminders to refer to. 
1. cut burlap to desired size
2. sew each side
3. stamped the phrase with black fabric paint and little alphabet stamp kit from Michaels
4. wash and iron


  1. Love this! Miss you!
