This easy to make item can easily be converted from a placemat to a bread basket by buttoning up the sides. Any embellishment can be done on each pentagon such as embroidery, decorative stitches, appliqué, thread couching, pin tucking or even beading.
In this project we used a French Knot stitch as a decorative stitch to form the star. For a larger mat make a larger size pentagon.
Note: This is a pattern only
