Tuesday Tutorial




Americana Door Mat


Supplies

__________
Wicker Door Mat

( I found mine at the $ store)

Paints- Navy Blue-Red-Cream

5 different color of fabric

a 1/4 yard each.


--------------------------------------------------


First you will have to paint a flag on the Door mat
And let dry.

I usually use homespun fabric because it has print on both sides.

This time I used calico fabric.
While the mat is drying cut all the fabric in 1 inch strips 9" long.

Make a small slit on the fabric and just tear the fabric. So much easier.
or you can cut it. What best for you.
Next tie the strips around the opening on the end.

Alternate the fabric.
Go all away around the mat.



Now go around one more time

On the next line above it.
I know but you can do it while watching TV.

Now your are done. I put mine on my fireplace.

But you can use your anywhere.


I hope you enjoy this tutorial

Have fun .

Many Prim blessing
