Bat and Moon Placemat – Free Pattern

Bat and Moon Placemat – Free Pattern
Spread the love

The bat and moon placemat is the last in the current collection of Halloween placemats. I am thrilled at how many of you liked these patterns! They were fun to design and fun to make.

These placemats will brighten up any table and make any mealtime fun. When the kids come to my house for meals they beg for these mats! (I actually designed and made them all last summer but with everything going on last year we missed the boat with these.)

I guess I will have to start thinking about another Halloween collection for next year!

Did you see the other patterns in this collection?

The pumpkin pattern is a free pattern on the blog too. You can find it here.

The witches cat and hat placemats are available in our shops.
