It's Gardening Week and we LOVE #diy projects! If you're like us, we like to upcycle everything, and take all of our "scraps" to create something new! For us, our project cost was exactly $6! Our sweet office worker, Paula, made it all by hand!
First let's talk about the materials you need:
1 Yard of Oilcloth, or Paula used a tablecloth that she had around our house!
3/4 Hook and Loop
1" Vinyl Webbing
Embellish Fusible batting scraps or Old Towels and/or clothes to stuff the kneeling pad!
Coordinating Thread, we used Floriani 60 weight!
Strap of choice
Now, let's talk tools:
Cosplay Purple Scissors

Quilters Select 18" x 24" dual sided mat
Any Sewing Machine Will Do
