I am excited to release the latest pattern in the Hexie Placemat series – the Hexie Pumpkin Placemat! This placemat is perfect for fall/autumn, Halloween or Thanksgiving. The Hexie Pumpkin Placemat features a foundation paper pieced pumpkin in the centre of the placemat, framed by a simple patchwork border.
This versatile pattern can be used as a placemat, mug rug/coaster, pot holder or trivet. If using as a pot holder or trivet, simply add a layer of Insul-brite (insulated wadding) so it is heatproof.
In this duo I used neutral colours in the border which give them a modern farmhouse appeal. You can easily change the colours to suit your home or occasion. For example in a Halloween placemat set you may prefer to use more orange and black fabrics and add Jack O’Lantern features to the pumpkin.
If you are looking for a smaller project to work on in between larger projects, the Hexie Pumpkin Placemat is a fun make that can be easily made in an afternoon. Be warned – you won’t want to stop at one and soon you will have enough for your whole table.
The Hexie Pumpkin Placemat is available for immediate download from our Pattern Store and Etsy Shop. Like all of our patterns it includes full sized templates formatted in both A4 and Letter size for your ease in printing at home.
