How to Make a Placemat : Attaching a Vinyl Cover to a Placemat
I’m Shelly Cordsen here with Expert Village.
And we are still working on our personality placemats and our next step will be to cut
your vinyl which is fairly thin which is what feel works best and you will lay that on the
top and then you will have to put our binding on which will be a later step. but you will
really do not put the vinyl on until you after you have quilted all your layers together,
if you sew through the vinyl, you will put holes in the vinyl then if they spill something
on it, the liquid will then go through those holes and damage their art work .So the vinyl
needs to have no holes in it. So do all your sewing before you put the vinyl on and the
vinyl I buy you can buy .I got mine down at Wal-Mart, there is different qualities it
is on a huge roll this long and there is different signatures and this is one, of the I think
I call this a level two but you want it real pliable and why use vinyl on my placemats
is, I know we will get it real dirty and we can wipe it off and they are still able to
go in the washing machine but you won’t have to do it as often. k, I will show you another
way you can back your art work in just a moment.
