I found chalkboard fabric online a while back but I had never been able to figure out what to make with it. Until I found the idea online to make chalkboard placemats! The ones I had found online told you to paint a piece of wood with chalkboard paint and use that. I immediately thought of the chalkboard fabric as a great material for this project. I used the fabric and denim for the other side. I also tried out some of the fun stitches on the sewing machine to make the edges.
