Sizing
Supplies
Fabric Main Fabric & Lining - You will need any medium weight woven (non-stretch) fabric such as quilting cotton, cotton, or poly cotton. Most people use a dark color for the Pathway. All the blocks will be placed on top, leaving this exposed as the Pathway. Note - If you are using light colored fabrics for your Blocks and Edges, use either the same fabric, or a plain fabric to line them with so that you will not see the Pathway fabric underneath. OPTIONAL Fairytale Block Fabrics – You will need a non-fraying fabric such as felt for the decorations on each block. The edges of these are not finished so we recommend a non-fraying fabric such as felt. You will need assorted colors in scrap size. Many stores sell felt packs, or it is a great one to raid your stash for.
You will also need:
  • Thread - various colors to match
  • OPTIONAL Fusible Webbing e.g. Pellon 805 Wonder-Under, 'heat n bond', 'bondaweb', fusible web, or iron-on adhesive. Approximately 1 yard will be sufficient if adding all decorations.
  • Or OPTIONAL Fabric glue - If you are not using double sided interfacing, use this as an alternative.
  • OPTIONAL Medium or light weight fusible interfacing. Approximately 1 yard will be sufficient.
  • OPTIONAL Handle and Straps - 1/4 yard of iron-on interfacing.
    • Note - Premade straps or webbing can be used in place of fabric straps.
  • Batting - About 1 yard, this project can get thick quick, so choosing a thin and stable batting will be quite helpful.
  • OPTIONAL Hook and Loop Tape (Velcro) - Approximately 1 yard. This is used for the OPTIONAL Fairytale Block Decorations and the OPTIONAL Straps. Other decorations have optional tape.
  • OPTIONAL Trims - The characters included in the mat require optional facial features. If you are adding decorations, you can use embroidery floss or fabric paint to create the faces. If you would like to add a Whale Spout, this can be created using embroidery thread.
Tools
