What Type of Batting for Place Mats?

Ask an Expert Banner NQC


Hello,
I’m making place mats, what type of batting do I need?

NQC Answer

If you want your place mats to be heat resistant- you can use heat resistant batting. Otherwise, you can use thin cotton, polyester, or a cotton/poly blend.

If you need some more information about making your own place mats, our sister site National Sewing Circle, has a few helpful videos: Serge Along Placemats and Sewing Placemats Personalized with Photos

Hope this helps,
