Placemat upcycling idea

A stylish addition for your dinner table

Wondering what to do with all your old fabric bags? If so, we’ve got the answer: simply transform plain fabric bags into stylish placemats! Use edding textile markers to magic up a suitable design. The textile markers come in a selection of 20 colours, so you're sure to find the perfect shade to suit your taste. And if you find the marker too thick, you can try the range of edding textile pens with finer nibs. A quick iron without steam is all you need to set the ink and ensure your finished placemats can be machine washed even at 60°C.
