You will need:

  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon)
  • medium- to light-weight iron-on stabilizer or interfacing,
  • fabric for the embroidered part,
  • fabric for the top and back of the mat,
  • batting,
  • graphic pencil, scissors and fabric glue.

Sewing the Mat

Step One: Although it's not too difficult to make the template from scratch, using our ready-made one is much easier! Download the file with the template. To open and print the template, you will need Adobe Reader, if you don't already have this program.
