Placemat sewing kit

This kit was fun to make, my daughter got her first sewing machine. She more interested in using the decorative stitches as a embellishment technique when she is scrapbooking. I figure one thing leads to another and someday she's going to want me to teach her how to sew. We"ll see! Anyway, I thought I would make her a sewing/scrapbooking kit. She can use it whatever she likes.

If you have any questions please email me and would I glad to help. I've tried to keep the pictures as few as possible but still give a good idea of how I made the kit. I have a suggestion for those who love to quilt, try making a placemat instead of buying one. Maybe a crazypatch or a stack n whack mat would be great

Here's a list of things I used to make the kit:

1 placemat- 18-1/2x14

Ribbon- grograin is the best. Used three different patterns

Ziploc bags, can use either tab or zipper type

Roll of paper-back water soluble sticky tape-1/4"wide

Button for closure
Fabric for optional pocket
