    It Isn't Very Large....But

    I hated to throw away my old cutting mat, and I have been wanting a design wall. I glued some batting on it and it works. Not fancy, but who cares. I can even hang it up.

    Thanks NH, Yes I am hoping the Patriots win for everyone back home. My brother-in-law bought me the sign. It says Bruins Blvd. :-)

    Well, that's a brilliant idea, thanks for sharing. It's do-able, even for me! I have an old mat under the bed.

    I've cut my old mats into smaller pcs, a small x 6 and a 12 x 12 this way I hae a smaller size by the machine and stuff. also used it for papercrafting/scrapbooking
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Great idea. I bought a mat just like this at an estate sale. I didn't need another but couldn't pass it up b/c it was only a dollar (brand new). Now I can put it (or the original one) to use. Thank you!

    Very, very clever!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Great idea. Was just wondering how I could make up a design wall. I have a mat that I could the same thing with.
    Thanks so much for the idea

    Looks like a great idea. Always good to find more uses for something. I cut a warped mat down to two smaller mats.
