And keep your cats out of your stuff!
As you can probably guess, not having a proper sewing room, Simon and Sophie love getting into my stuff! (I use a small sewing cabinet on wheels, which I love. It lets me sew in any room or corner of the house!) Before today, I covered my sewing cabinet with a towel and my sewing machine with an old tee shirt – classy, huh?
I decided it was time to protect my sewing cabinet with a washable mat and protect whichever sewing machine I was using with a proper cover.
The sewing mat was quite easy. I measured the cabinet top. The bottom black layer of the mat was cut from a pre-quilted cotton remanent. The top layer was cut from a remanent of the fabric I used to make this swimsuit cover up. I just sewed the two layers together and added black bias tape around the edges. Easy to wash and handy for poking the odd pin into too!
