For months we've been using rectangle shaped placemats on our round table, because it's all we had.
And while it works just fine, I knew it could be so much better.
And I was right.
I don't know why I hadn't thought of this before.
Semi-circle placemats, also called half moon placemats (which sounds cooler, especially to us Twilight fans) fit perfectly on round tables.
For the material, I decided to re-purpose the rest of the Anthropologie tablecloth. You know, the one I used to make that snazzy, colorful apron? Is it weird that my apron will match my placemats?
Anywho, for a little flexible padding I also cut a matching piece of cotton batting for the middle.
I love how they turned out.
Our new half moon placemats will be beautifying our little round table at every meal.
