UPDATE-I have been mislead by a 4 year old! She decided on the blue because it has snowflakes! It had snowflakes yesterday, when she wanted the green-lol-is that not just like a female?!-sh.h.. be quiet, don't tell the men that!--so Rylan is coming for me to babysit while the parents go Christmas shopping and I will hurry and give him the green BEFORE Miss Nora changes her mind yet again!!!----

Hello Cuties, I made another Santa place mat today despite still having ear problems.

Nora and Gus came a little while and she picked this green one, so the first blue one, will be for little Rylan. They end up being 12 inches square...I made my center green strip for Santa's Milk too small and my letters went over into the red and white stripe fabric...oh well.

FYI, I hoop my fleece and fabric, no stabilizer.

thank you for showing how you made your square - I appreciate photos :)

You're very welcome.
I have a 6 1/2 inch square ruler I used AFTER I embroidered onto fleece with NO stabilizer. You have to cut each piece of fleece and fabric big enough to hoop in a 5x7 hoop and still have enough to cut 6 1/2 inch when you un-hoop. My back piece is 15 inches s

My back piece is 15 inches square. I center the assembled 4 blocks and pin wrong sides together, then sew in the ditch, from center of 4 sq to edge of 4 square, always starting at center.
I then iron my back edges over to make my binding. I iron half my edge MEETING the 4 sq block, then iron that edge OVER my 4 square block, mitering the corners.
I hope this helps and if you need anything else, just ask

OH I do love this Toogie, it's so cute I could even be tempted to make some. :-)
Now I'll have to go find your other post again to see where it came from. :-)

I put it together myself after I was inspired by another site that sold them ITH.
You CAN make this yourself. Look above at my response and info to missqueenbee47 comment.

Thanks Michelle.

I’m thrilled you got them both one each. Great job and you’re too hard on yourself - if you hadn’t said anything the uninformed wouldn’t notice. Love Chris
