It's Tuesday and you're gonna love it.

Ya Tuesday

On father's day we had lunch outside and it was a little windy blowing the tablecloths around and around.
We had clips on some of them but not all.
So I decided I would make something that would serve as a cover for the deck table.
I picked up some scrap pieces of plarn (plastic yarn) and begin to crochet a round placemat.

 This is what I came up with.

I wanted a big piece of cardboard to Mod Podge it to but didn't have it so used a brown paper bag.

 If this doesn't work I will try plastic or get some cardboard.

 Mod Podge on

 Next a layer of fabric from my stash.

 Sorry about the blur.
Cut the fabric about 1/2 inch bigger so it can be turned and hot glued directly under the plarn.

Covered with Mod Podge it can be wiped off if food is spilled on it.

My next mat. Now these don't have to match. It is more fun to just mix up the colors.

Don't know about plarn
A how to video below. 

I save all colored shopping bags and my family and friends save them for me.

Check on my Art and crochet page for other items I have made out of plarn.

Hi, Peggy
I still haven't been able to figure out how to crochet. I'll have to give it another try.
