The aroma of turkey is now a fond memory, and sixteen of us had full bellies and a wonderful Thanksgiving. So I have started playing with Christmas dishes, and attempted to use what I think is a placemat. In the photo below, you can see those two fabric square "placemats" (???) that I purchased last year from Century 21. I bought several with the intention of making Christmas pillows and probably will. But I'm trying to determine what they really were designed for.
In the photo below, I opened it up See those flaps on each side --- what are they for?
In the next photo, you will see that I folded those flaps in half to make it look more like a placemat. But I know it isn't correct.
What's your guess?
