Make this fun sewing mat for your sewing room! It has four cheerful pockets and one pretty thread bag that detaches for easy emptying!! The best part of all is the TOOL STRIP! My favorite! If you have metal bobbins, the MAGNETIC tool strip can be the width of your mat! It's so handy! Don't worry - if your bobbins are plastic or cardboard, you can include the cute bobbin pockets in your tool strip! Make sure you include a few magnetic blocks for your scissors, tweezers, needles, seam ripper, etc.
You can also customize the mat to fit your space. Do you want the mat to be longer or wider? Need a cutout for a knee lift? No problem. (The drop is about 9", and my knee lift clears it just fine. See the picture below!) Samples of different size mats have been included in the instructions. The mat above measures 27½" by 31½". The drop (from the tool strip to the bottom of the pockets) is 9".
You can even make the pocket strip and hang it on the wall for instant storage! I have one hanging on the wall above my cutting mat.
All of the blocks are made in the hoop. Detailed instructions to make the Sew Something Mat from start to finish are included in a PDF file.
