It also gave the chance to use some of the gorgeous items that arrived recently from Sew Box Subscriptions. I was lucky enough to receive one of the first boxes sent out in September from this new website and I was impressed. The presentation was gorgeous – a neat white box tied with pretty blue ribbon, and the contents were lovely. I have shared a few pictures on Instagram and Facebook where you can see the floral fabric, matching thread, dyed crochet doilies, unusual ribbon, Wonder Clips and some special vouchers. These boxes are available every month and you can sign up now at the Sew Box Subscriptions website.But on to the tutorial!
Sew a Sewing Machine Mat with Pockets
What You Need
- 2 Rectangles of Fabric – 22″ x 26″ (If you want to adjust the size: 22″ is a little wider than the base of my sewing machine, 26″ is the depth of the mat plus the depth of the pocket x 2)
- 1 Rectangle of Iron-on Pellon – 21″ x 25″ (This is just slightly smaller than your fabric rectangles)
- Decorative Ribbon – 23″ long for pocket trim + 1.5″ for scissors loop (see note)
- Usual sewing supplies – thread, scissors, etc.
