Welcome to Simply Small parade day where I showcase simple projects made with 2 1/2" squares. As I thought about what to make for this month's pattern, I immediately thought of scrappy place mats perfect for summer get togethers and 4th of July celebrations (if you are here in the U.S.). I've made two this morning already and will definitely be making more. The pattern is written to make four place mats, so be sure to adjust accordingly if you are making a different number. I've sent patterns to today's parade participants, and the pattern is available in my Craftsy shop for anyone else who would like to participate. The pattern is perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas themed tables, too, so if you want to get a head start for the fall holidays you could start getting these ready for those holiday table settings. Okay...on with the parade of more projects made with 2 1/2" squares.
Cheryl used the spools pattern by Edyta Sitar for her fun small project.
