Place Mats

Hello, Friends!   Today I made a fun burlap place mat.  The holidays will be here before you know it and I'm getting my table settings off to a running start.  These would look fun on your table as well; or maybe give as a gift for someone else.

Burlap Place Mat

To create this place mat you'll need:

  • Burlap - mine has been cut at 12" x 13".  I didn't want it too big as our table gets pretty full with family.
  • Utensils Image - #53392 from the Silhouette Store
  • Text - font used is Alex Brush
  • Heat Press and Ink Transfer Printer and Paper
  • Silhouette Software

After you download your image, you'll need to color fill to your own preferences.  You'll need to split your image to add the text in the center.  Then add your own text at the top, middle and bottom.

Once I was done with my design, I flipped the image horizontally and sent it to the my Ricoh Chromablast printer using 11" x 17" heat transfer paper.  The image was then heat pressed onto the burlap at 375 degrees for 20 seconds.

The process is simple once you have acquired all the expensive equipment.

Thanks for visiting today! ~ Marilyn

  1. My question is about your printer. Is that a sublimation printer that you are using? If so, does it only transfer the ink?
