Scrap Buster Contest Entry ~ Child’s Playmat Tutorial

Can you keep up?! We have lots more entries to post… Check back often!

Liv writes, “I’ve already gained so much inspiration for using up the beautiful scraps in my pile from all the projects offered up so far. This project stemmed from wanting use up the scraps that I don’t like very much. The scene on the playmat could just as easily be an ocean, zoo, desert, city, or a railyard to name a few. The project uses a figure-it-out-as-you-go rather than a sit-and-measure-beforehand approach and so presents endless possibilities without too much adjusting. Finally, a great idea would be to make the playmat reversible, with a different scene on each side. I hope anyone who gives it a whirl gets in touch, I’d love to see finished playmats!” Enjoy her Child’s Playmat Tutorial at Fifty-Four Stitches.

    I think this would be great with oilcloth or chalkboard fabric on the back!

    Yes!! To think I drew and colored on cardboard when my boys were young- this would make a great gift!

    I love this! I remember spending hours playing on the kitchen floor using the pattern in the linolium as city blocks for tiny cars and people. This will be so much softer and cleaner for my little one!
