Mouse Pad from fabric scraps

When you have fabric scraps lying around, the best way to make use of them if trying out things you have never done before. I did that today. I utilized it to try three things I have never done before - straight line quilting, free motion quilting and fabric painting.

So this is the first one.

Nice one right. But yes I know I have fallen back really bad on the binding end. Yes I need to master that.
Problem with that is it requires patience... ;)

Now onto the next one. This is the one where I tried my hand at fabric painting.

Tried some freemotion quilting. But this was a failure. I know it looks pathetic. So i started using it as a hot-pad.
Lesson 1: If you plan to make a mouse pad, go ahead with straight line quilting. Its smoother and more comfortable to use. Free motion quilted one was a no- no (Certified by dear hubby)

Lesson 2 : Be patient while doing the binding. :(

What have you been up to lately???
Happy Crafting !

  1. Oooh, I love the painted fabric, even if the straight-line quilting worked out better in the end! Great project, and what creative-type doesn't like having something handmade right there as they blog or browse on Pinterest?? ;)

    1. haha... true... it nice to have things that you make around u ... keeps the motivation level's up :)

  2. Such a cool idea!! The fabric painting looks amazing.
    Thanks for sharing at Artsy Corner. Hope to see you again this week :)
