Craft Swap

My latest craft swap i decided to make a picnic/hop scotch rug. The material on the bottom is of the water proof nature well it feels like it lol. The top is made from a stretchy material a first for me to sew with. The rug has batting in the middle so is lovely and thick but not too thick.

Making this rug was a learning curve as i have never made anything this big. Add thread breaking, needle breaking and trying to sew the materials altogether was a new one for me. So i didn't want to look tooo closely at my stitching once it was complete lol. But i am very happy with the way it came out.

Unfortunately i am not sure when i can sew anything else until i can get my machine serviced as after this project i went to change thread in the bobbin to make Zach pj's and the machines timing went out. :(
