Another one bites the dust...

Yes, it is still dusty around here....they predict it will stay hazy for the next couple of days but that gives me a perfect excuse to stay indoors and........

Thanks Jenny for inviting us to take part in the Sewing Machine Mat Challenge, 'cause guess what I've been doing?????   Here's mine....


You might recognise the fabric.....a few posts ago I was spruking about the sale items I bought from here and, yes, I thought this was the perfect excuse to use this very pretty fabric!  It's 'Verandah' by Ro Gregg for Northcott (Quest for a Cure)...a really pretty green (I know it looks blue in the photo but I guarantee it's a soft, sage green!)
I added jumbo red rickrack edged with a red and green spotty ribbon to finish the pockets.  You might see it better in this photo -



And you were right Jenny....I followed your tutorial and it DID only take an hour to make...very impressive!!!
So if I can do it, you can too - it took very little time (I love things where I can see results immediately!!) and was really easy; I didn't have to buy anything special (I had already bought that fabric, so that doesn't count!!) and I have something that I can use for ever and ever!!!!.....Now off to it all of you....Jenny's Challenge finishes tomorrow....come on.....you can do it!!!!!!
