Here is the first pojagi placemat that I did totally independently. I bought the fabric at the market and used a very simple design. I realized afterward that white may not be the best colour for placemats, but I am interested to see how this fabric stands up to regular use and washing.
This is one side:

The seams are similar to, but not exactly like, felled seams so there are not open seam allowances. I took some pictures so I can do a tutorial on this technique. This is the same technique that I used for my red and green table runner, and since I did not have to match any corners, it was much more enjoyable.
Here is a close-up of the stitches. Side one:
I have two placemats finished. I’m not sure if I have enough fabric to make four more, so I might only make two more and then give them as a gift. I’m sure other colour combinations would look nice as well.
