What Type of Batting for Place Mats?

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,

    Hi there. I want to make a covering for a small stool. I am new to sewing & need help to figure out how to cover it. The top is 12 “ in diameter & 24” high. I want to make Dresden plates to appliqué on it. Can someone help me figure out how big to make it please. Thank you. Marilyn
