To Make.

1. Cut the hessian fabric to squares or rectangles of your desired size (I made mine 35cm x 35cm square).

2. Starting from one corner, pin the lace trim to the edge of hessian fabric along one side.
Tip: Find a repeat pattern on the lace trim to line up with the edge of the hessian – making it even all around.

3. When you get to the corner, turn the trim 90 degrees so it is continuing in the direction of the next side of the mat.

You will notice there a gather has formed in the lace trim at this corner. Pinch together this gather and fold so it’s lying flat against the mat, pin in place.

4. Continue pinning the trim all around the edge of the mat, repeating Step 3 above for each corner.

5. When you reach the place you started, cut off the excess lace trim.

6. Using your sewing machine and coordinating thread, sew a straight stitch around the edge of the mat, joining the lace to the hessian.

7. Secure the excess lace trim at your corners of your may by sewing diagonally along the fold.

8. Neaten by trimming the excess threads and press (use a cool iron on the lace).

    These look fab, and seem pretty straight forward. I think I will have a go!! They’d look perfect in our Papakata Tipi reception.
