These indigo cotton placemats are just right for casual summer dining out of doors. Perfect for an early morning breakfast or a light lunch under the sun umbrella, their dusky blue colour and open lacy patterning brings a welcome sense of cool even to the hottest of summer days.
The pattern includes instructions for two sizes of rectangular placemats and an oval central table mat which is well-insulated to provide some protection for your tabletop. Both styles are reversible, giving a choice of looks for your next occasion. Mix and match the designs to create a dining set for yourself or as a gift for someone special.
