Today we are going to make a mug-mat. We don’t need wet cup marks on our sewing tables!
The finished size is approx 12.5″ x 9.5″ . If you want to make a larger one you will need to vary these measurements. The finished mat looks like a little quilt with binding but it doesn’t have binding at all!! This method is fine for small projects like this, doll quilts, pot holders etc but I wouldn’t recommend it for finishing a quilt. (That’s another lesson!!)
We will need:
Sitch in the Ditch foot All Purpose foot
Join to Feature fabric . Press
Pin the mat to secure it to the backing:
Your mat will now look like this:
Now we are going to fold the edges again and this time it will fold over onto the mat (and look like binding). Pin.
When you get to a corner:
Then fold over again to form a lovely, mitred corner!!
Using the All Purpose foot, I lined the edge of the foot with the edge of the binding:
Until next time
