Garden Kneeling Pad

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!

  • Velcro

  • Strap of choice

Now, let's talk tools:

  • Clips

  • Cosplay Purple Scissors

  • Quilters Select 60mm Rotary Cutter

  • Quilters Select 18" x 24" dual sided mat

  • Any Sewing Machine Will Do
