I made a cute snack mat last night. I just love the way it looks and want to share the tutorial with you.
I tried to shoot every steps and even draw pattern. I hope you can make your version of snack mat that you can use over and over.
size: 11inch x 11inch
print out the pattern and trace it on linen. cut out fabric pieces and glue them on the linen. you can skip this part and embroidery with colorful thread.
I sew them with white thread first to secure.
Then with dark thread draw the outline using sewing machine. My friend’s hand embroidery came out beautifully.
put patting and back cotton underneath and hand quilt all together.
I sew some lace and cotton label to decorate.
for the round edge, using right bias, iron, zigzag stitch is very helpful.
I just love the result. This dessert mat going to be my best friend’s birthday gift. I hope she doesn’t sneak peek my blog yet. 🙂
