The Snack Mat Swap

 At this week's PMQG meeting we swapped mug rugs/snack mats. I've been a little suspicious of this trend, but I was happy to try it out, in the spirit of playing along. I made this one from my orange scrap bin, it's about 8x7 inches. Loved how skinny and perfect that single fold binding turned out!



And I received this one!


Now would you believe that out of 40 or so people, we each happened to draw each other's? Cosmic! I believe my swap partner was Beth, but as PMQG members can tell you, all my brain cells aren't necessarily firing at the meetings, so I could have just totally screwed that up. Anyway, I love the organic leafy echo stitching!






This thing came just in time because lately our kiddie table has been getting caked in Play Doh. Now I have something pretty to look at and the kid isn't ingesting her craft supplies at snack time!

Nice mats..I'll have to remember that size..

Both are just beautiful! I love single fold binding on smaller projects - it seems so much easier. Like the fabric just wants to fold over and be sewn down.

I really like that size too.
