So I bought the fairy fabric from an op shop in Parkdale, and here is the first chalk mat I have made out of it:
A friend of mine ordered two chalk mats from me, as Christmas gifts for her friends children (girls), one of which is going overseas - a great idea for kids on planes!. I've made the other chalk mat out of some pretty quilting fabric my Mum gave to me last year. She originally bought it for quilting many years ago.
Just big enough to fit into your handbag!
