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!!!!!!
