Foliage Place Mats

Source: Martha Stewart Living, March 2004


All you need is a pair of scissors and a few other simple materials to grow big leaf place mats from Ultrasuede fabric -- no watering required. Ultrasuede, which is available at most fabric and crafts stores, doesn't fray and is machine washable; you can use our template for the leaf shape. We alternated between fabric in two shades of green to set an inviting table for lunch.


  • Ultrasuede

  • Pins

  • Pencil

  • Scissors


  1. Begin by printing the templates.

  2. Cut out the pieces, attach them so they form a leaf shape, and lay the shape over a large piece of Ultrasuede; pin.

  3. Trace the shape onto the fabric with a pencil, then cut out with scissors.
