Placemat dilemma

I've had this idea for a while to make some simple, yet fun place mats that also just happen to be somewhat educational. The reason? For my son to remember how to set the table when he's helping me out at dinner time. Really, he already knows how, but sometimes he just needs a little reminder. I figured I need some more table linens, why not make some that are fun and practical! I also want to make then super easy to clean, so I am going to try out some of the special iron on vinyl I got a while back just for this purpose. Did you know about this stuff?! You can turn any fabric you love into something you can just wipe clean! How nifty is that? I just love products like this. Granted, the other place mats I have can be washed, but darn it if they don't get stains I cannot get out.

The dilemma? Trying to decide which fabric combo to use....

When I figure it out, I will be back with more pictures and how-to's.
