Free project instructions to make placemats into a casserole cover.
Begin by planning where to stitch the design on the placemat.

A template is a printout of a design, and it's an excellent tool for planning where to stitch.

Print a template of the design from your embroidery software.

If you do not have embroidery software to print templates, try  Wilcom's TrueSizer, a free program.
