Adjust the Colors, Block Layout, Size and Pocket Configuration!
The rainbow of crayon-colored stripes in this sewing machine mat caught our eye. What held our attention is how cleverly the mat is organized.
The pockets on the front of the mat are shorter than some we’ve seen. That makes it a better option for quilters with a short drop between their table and lap.
Instructions are provided for creating pockets that exactly fit the tools you use at the machine. Plus, a bit of rug gripper can be used to keep the mat from moving.
The colorful triangle design can be laid out however you like best. Choose a rainbow of stripes as seen here, or go with another pretty combination of fabrics you love. Create stripes, another design, or just an overall scrappy look. It’s totally up to you.
Instructions, from designer We All Sew, are included for mats in two sizes:
- Full sized sewing machine mat – 39 1/2″ across by 15″ under the machine with a 5″ drop-down row of front pockets.
- Smaller sized mat – 27 1/2″ across by 15″ under the machine with a 5″ drop-down row of front pockets.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
