Last Wednesday, while at the Clubhouse, I went around with my camera and caught all the FINISHED sewing mats in action!!
First up is Doris’ sweet mat…made out of the cutest sewing fabric!!
And look at what is to the right of her machine…check out the mug that she made out of fabric…it’s really a pin cushion and attached is the thread catcher! Is that not the cutest!! BUT WAIT…it doesn’t match…
…SEW Doris is making one to match her mat! Here she is making her thread catcher in the same sweet sewing motif!
Heritage Judy has a pink and blue mat that is sweet too!! Notice how we all made mats to accommodate the width of our machines.
And this one is mine…the paisley print is in a soft blue and apple green…perfect for my blue sewing room back home! It is 24” by 18’ and the instructions to make one can be found HERE…
NOW I KNOW that there were more than three of us making mats…sew where are the rest? Well you know how it is…it’s that darn binding that needs to be hand sewn!! Stay tuned, I’m sure more will eventually turn up!!
One of my readers said that she made a sewing mat by just turning up the pocket area and stitching! How easy would that be! And if you use the pre-quilted fabric you would have a coordinating print for the pockets…now that would be VERY cute!! BUT I have to say I LOVE the mesh!! It’s nice to be able to see what’s in the pockets at a single glance!
Regardless of how you make your mat, once you do, you will love it!! I like to keep Jack the Ripper in mine. As you can see he’s not in the pocket right now …but once I FIND him that’s where he’s going to go!! He has a way of walking off…
Thanks for stopping by on this SUPER Saturday and happy stitching!~P
