Table Mats with Fir Tree Cone Embroidery.

These charming irregularly-shaped table mats feature the Fir Tree Cone embroidery. They're perfect for the Winter season.

The finished size of each table mat is about 14" x 14" (36 cm x 36 cm)

You will need:

  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon)
  • medium- to light-weight iron-on stabilizer or interfacing,
  • fabric for the embroidered part,
  • fabric for the top and back of the mat,
  • batting,
  • graphic pencil, scissors and fabric glue.

Sewing the Mat

Step One: Although it's not too difficult to make the template from scratch, using our ready-made one is much easier! Download the file with the template. To open and print the template, you will need Adobe Reader, if you don't already have this program.

Step Two: Print out the template.

Step Three: Adhere the fabric for the top to the iron-on cut-away stabilizer or interfacing.

Lay the piece out with the stabilizer facing up. Position your template over the stabilizer and trace the template with the pencil.

Step Four: With a pair of sharp scissors, cut out the central part 1/2" from the inner line.

Cut the notches into the seam allowance from the edge up to the inner line.

Step Five: Fold the notched fabric back, press. Using fabric glue, adhere the notches to the stabilizer. Leave to dry.

Step Six: Position the batting on the table and cover with the fabric for the backing, face up. Cover with the working piece, face down.

Step Seven: Pin all the layers together.

Step Eight: On your sewing machine, topstitch along the outer line.

Step Nine: Cut away excess fabric and batting along the outer line leaving about 1/4" of seam allowance.

Then cut away the batting on the seam allowance close to the stitches.
Cut the notches on the seam allowance.

Step Ten: Turn the working piece right side out and lay flat.

Step Eleven: Top-stitch 1/4" (6 mm) along the outer curve.

Step Twelve: On the fabric for the central part, make the embroidery of the fir tree cone.

Step Thirteen: Using the template, trace the outer line onto the fabric with the embroidery.

Cut out the piece 1" inside from the line.

Insert the embroidered piece into the "frame".

Pin all layers together.

On your sewing machine, topstitch along the inner line of the frame. Then quilt the whole piece (optional).

That's it! The table mat is finished!
