Placemats converted

A quick and straightforward sew converted elderly placemats into storage bags and pots.

I folded a mat in half so that the fringed edges became the top hem then seamed both sides to make a simple bag. Then I boxed the bottom corners to give it structure.

Because these are heavyweight mats the finished article stands up well.

Smaller bags were made by chopping a mat in half and following the same simple sew.
