Another ( genuinely) thrifty project! Following on from the upcycled fabric sample mat previously published ( Stash bust project 1) I thought I would try another variation with a larger sample. I love pansies. This mat was easier to do than the last and I am pleased with the result.The cost? Less than a pound including the Scotchguarding. I simply quilted around the flowers. I have stain guarded it as it is going on the floor. Incidently despite stain guarding the last one it still got dirty quite quickly, even though I constantly avoiding standing on it! Taking my life in my hands, bearing in mind the fabrics were dry clean only, I shoved it in the washing machine on a delicates cycle and if anything it has improved it! It has squared up nicely , although there is a small amount of shrinkage the quilting also seems to have been improved. Thank God for that!
