Last year I made Circle Time mats for the kids in our Preshool Co-Op group. They were very useful for keeping the students sitting in a specific place when it was teaching time. This year O and I are participating in Co-Op with the same kids, so they can reuse their mats! Yay!
This year another group of Moms are doing Co-Op for their 3-year-olds and they asked me to make mats for their kids.
Sadly, their names don’t spell something like our group did.
But they’re still cute, I think. Even the boy mats! Sewing for boys is a challenge for me. Even when I pick out male colors they often end up looking too girlie.
These guys finish off at about 12.5″ square and are basically mini quilts with letters appliquéd to them. The cost to make one is $20. I gave these Moms a discount since I wasn’t able to give them a price before they hired me.
And, since these families are all Believers, their kids got a special message quilted into their mats. I find free motion quilting to be difficult, except when writing words. Then it was fun.
It feels really good to finish sewing something. Next up: more boy bibs and a purse for ME!
