Mother's Day Table Mats with Rose Embroidery

The Rose Table Mats feature a unique floral shape that make them stand out. They are both practical and beautiful, and would make a great gift.

The embroidery design used in this project is the Mother's Day Rose for the large (5" x 7") hoop. However, you can use any patterns from our large Floral collection.

The finished size of each mat is about 15" in diameter.

Step Two: Print out the template, cut it out and connect the parts for the template. You can use tape for this, or trace the parts of the template onto a large sheet of cardstock and cut it out again.

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 a pencil.
