BEACH HOUSE RAFFIA PLACEMATS
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- Moda Vera Beach House Raffia, 35G in various colours
- Plastic Mesh 10 count or Plastic Mesh 7 count
- Large embroidery needle optional
Step 1. Cut plastic mesh canvas sheet into an oval shape.
Step 2. Wrap the edges of the oval with raffia. I wrapped a small piece of tape around the end of the raffia to keep it from fraying.
Step 3. Starting in the center, begin creating lines on the canvas to create a chevron pattern. Make the pattern as large as you want. You can count the holes or use a marker to draw out your pattern on the plastic.
Step 4. When starting and ending a string of raffia, leave a tail that you can tuck in. Tying the raffia is unsightly, and this helps create a more seamless appearance.
Step 5. Complete each row and then change colour repeating the process until the whole mat is covered.
