Placemat with Pocket

For an easy Placemat with Pocket you will need:
2- 13x 21 inch rectangles, same or coordinating fabric
2– 6x6 inch squares fabric for pockets
sewing supplies

This makes one placemat, if you are making more than one you'll need to have the correct amount of fabric per placemat.
