I am sharing a fun tutorial over on the Sizzix Blog today on how to make your own braided mat – or rug….depending on how much time you have.
This project is the perfect solution for those fabrics in your stash that you don’t really love anymore and the pile that is collecting in your scrap bin!
This mat project is pretty versatile – you can make coasters, hot pads, placemats, or even a rug if you want to keep going! The braided fabric is so easy to make using your Sizzix Bigz XL 25″ Die, Strips 1″ wide. All you need to know for this project is how to braid, and how to operate your sewing machine using a zig zag stitch.
