I need help on how to make a play rug or mat
I have a really cute piece of fabric, looks like a town with roads and buildings. I want to make it into a play mat or rug for my grandson. I have done the research, but i would like to hear personal projects and tutorials. Questions
1. should I fuse it onto a backing then bind it? And will that be tiff enough for him to crawl on or will it bunch up too much?
2. Is there a product to paint on it to stiffen it? Recommendations? If it is stiff, can it be rolled up or folded for storage?
3 thinking of using denim or canvas for a backing. Suggestions?
