For this project you will need:
- webbed place mat - this one measures 40 x 50 cm
- fabric strip that is approximately 5 cm high and the width of your place mat
- sewing thread matching color of fabric
- white cording about 60 cm long
- sewing machine and basic sewing supplies
Never again will you have to search for all of your needles. After rolling it up, it can be easily taken along or stored away.
For your kids you can use the same technique and create a roll to keep all of their pencils nicely together. Since the place mat already had a nice pattern on it, the fabric strip was omitted for the project.
