"I love combining thrift stores for men's dress shirts in fine fabrics. This week, I found this fabulous Lacoste shirt that was begging to be remade into an Easter basket liner and outfit for my grandbaby. If you've never used a steam-activated shrinking interfacing, like Pellon Fabric Magic, this project is for you. Steam activated fabric (available under several different brand names) gave my bunny applique just the right texture! I created both projects on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000. The free bunny applique download and instructions for creating texturized fabric are found below." - Janome Maker Milinda Stephenson

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.
