Now that I’ve finally learnt to sew, I thought I should put my new skills to use.
We bought The Limpet for her birthday some farm animals but she doesn’t have a farm house or barn or anything like that. So after searching through Pinterest, I decided to make a farm play mat.
I’d like to say that I used lots of scraps of fabric that I had lying around but as I’m new to this sewing malarkey I don’t have many scraps. So off I went to my local haberdashery to buy lots of fabric in various textures, colours and patterns.
I planned out a rough design and then got to work cutting bits up and sewing the whole thing together.
I wanted to make it as appealing as possible so I added lots of different textures. I used mainly cotton fabric but also included a heavy wool, corduroy, felt, ribbon and wool.
I wanted to inspire the monsters imagination and creativity so I didn’t make anything too obvious apart from the pond.
It was only finished last night but so far it has gone down very well. Here is a picture of The Limpet enjoying playing with it.
