When our old placemats had worn out their welcome, I went looking online. When I want to find unusual or quirky items, I often go onto That’s where I found Melinda and Erica, co-owners of The Monogram Line. I fell in love with their vibrant placemats and ordered one for each of my four babies.

A bit about the mats

These are well made placemats, with a rubber bottom to keep them in place (nothing worse than your dog pushing it’s mat and bowl around the room) and a fabric upper, which to me, feels like a type of felt. It’s washable and I’ve put dirty spots under the faucet with a bit of dish soap to get out individual stains. I just don’t put it in the dryer, just like I wouldn’t put my rubber backed shower mat into the dryer. I prop the mats up on the kitchen counter or you can lay them flat,  and they dry in no time, retaining their vibrant color.

The mats measure 12.25″ x 17″, a nice size big enough to catch the food my Sophie inevitably drops onto it and not so big that it overpowers the space. It’s 3mm thick.

When ordering…
