DIY Idea: Cheat Sheet Placemat

Kniggerich Cheat Sheet Placemat By Llot Llov

The Cheat Sheet Placemat from Charles & Marie (€17.00) takes the guesswork out of setting the table. Constructed of cotton and generous in size (25" x 23"), the placemat offers some 'basic rules of engagement', however, they don't appear to be in English. No matter; the outlines are all we need--and easily reproduced in embroidery or even with fabric markers. Reminds me of the messy table cloth from a few years back, which was also DIYable, BTW.

I was taught all this by my Mom, but it would be a great way to teach children the proper way to set a table. Or maybe I should have said, teach one's hubby. giggle

It's strange to me that the placemat drapes over the edge of the table, like a table cloth.  Is this a European thing?
