Our dilemma lies in the fact that we have rectangular placemats that are perfect for any other table but don't actually look right on the round table. We have searched in the kitchen, household, and department stores in our area and believe it or not, have not been able to find any placemats that would fit a round table.
Our search continued online and we found the coolest peppermint swirl round placemat and several others as you can see below.

Sid over at Sid's In Stitches came up with a nice tutorial for placemats that fit a round table. Since I'm usually one for a DIY project, I thought about using Sid's tutorial as my jumping off point to make my own placemats. Aren't they cool? I really like the fact that they are double sided. As Sid says, if one side gets dirty over breakfast, flip them over and clean placemats for dinner! (I paraphrased - she actually said it much better)

As soon as I complete my creations for our breakfast table, I'll show you how I did it. Hey! An actual tutorial by me...
P.S., If you choose to purchase the peppermint placemats through the link (to amazon), you will be helping this website stay alive.
