Once again I'm feeling the need for a quicky project that uses up some scraps. So when Daryl from Patchouli Moon posted pictures of her recent bowl project it gave me an idea and I grabbed a couple of leftover binding strips. You can find a tutorial over at CraftSylish for the fabric bowls.
My stitches are uneven but I don't care. For my strips I decided to press under a 1/4 seam so I wouldn't get any fraying.
No bowl here, but it sure is a cute little mat/rug thingy.
I got a little carried away and it's way to big for a sewing machine mat I had planned. Now what to do with my latest creation?
Or Dinner for one?
The perfect spot! This should keep that pedal in place.
Could you imagine a large area rug done with scraps? I wonder just how large a person could go? Maybe a project that size would need to be stitched by hand? With a little Google power I found a tutorial at a BeautifulMess for a larger rug using a similar method. Oh maybe someday, today I've quilting to do!
