Sewing Mat

Hi friends!
I mentioned the other day that my machine needed a mat under it.  So i started sewing 4 inch squares together. I love to use up scraps.
.I sandwiched it and sewed across it for the quilting. Then i found some orange that was folded and just the size i wanted for pockets.  Sewed up in several places to make different pockets Then all i had to do was make binding and sew it on the front fold it and sew it down on the back.
Nothing to hard because it will stay under one of my machines.
Now all of my machines has a cover and a mat.
Have a good one
Quilt Happy

Good idea and a handy place to keep your supplies.

Do you have a special sewing room?

Hi Barb.
I think I should make one. No matter what I do to organize, I can never find my ripper. I have resorted to buying one often when I can't find anything else to buy with a 40% off coupon. This is a great solution to THAT problem. Thanks for sharing a great idea.

Good job. I love the orange that you chose.

Looks great. Does it cut down on a noise a bit?

Great idea, I may have to make a couple for my machines too. Hope you don't mind me using your idea. I already have covers for my machines but not as pretty as yours, just made from one piece of fabric folded in half and stitched down two sides.
