What Do You Prefer? Papertowels or Snackmats?

I realized I'm always setting snacks out on paper towels for the girls.  It does make it easy to clean up, but it doesn't look very nice.  And I'm a quilter.  How easy it is for me to make snack mats for them.

 These are all ideas that I found on pinterest.

 I quilted the background first and then fused my applique pieces on top of that and stitched around them also.  Some are zig-zag, some are straight stitch.

 I even used nice backings for them. 

 And the girls really enjoy their snacks on them.

This is the last snackmat that I finished after the rest.


  1. Oh My Gosh Elaine - So Incredibly Adorable!!! And I love your snack mats too! LOL
    Whoop Whoop for you, because snack time is going to be a lot more fun around your house.

  2. Great idea! I could do that for my SS class.

  3. How could you not enjoy snacks on such beautiful snack mats? I love all of you ideas, but I think my favourite was the flowers. Thanks for linking to TGIFF!

  4. This are pretty sweet but mostly the girls!


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
