Project Instructions

  • 1
    Download and print project template. (Note: you will need to enlarge the image about 133% before printing.) Of the Decorated Pirate Green or Solid Pirate Green felt, cut out a 14 inch x 18 inch piece for the front and a Christmas tree using the template.
  • 2
    Find 26 buttons of the same size in the package listed under supplies and put them aside.
  • 3
    Of the White felt, cut out 3, 2-1/2 inch x 11 inch strips and a 4 inch circle.
  • 4
    With the White pearl cotton, blanket-stitch the three White strips in place on the front of the Mat as shown in the photo.
  • 5
    Blanket-stitch the 4 inch circle on the mat just above and to the right of the Christmas tree.
  • 6
    Cut out a 14 inch x 18 inch piece of the Pirate Green felt for the back. Blanket-stitch the front and back of the Santa Mat together, wrong sides facing, along all edges.
  • 7
    Glue the Christmas tree over the three White strips as shown at a slight angle.
  • 8
    Decorate the tree with the ric rac as garland, trimming the ends as needed. Cut out small squares of the Decorated Pirate Green felt around the snowflakes and glue them to the tree on the garland for decorations as shown.
  • 9
    Tie the pearl cotton thread in each button so it looks stitched and then glue 6 buttons on the tree in the center of the snowflake ornaments.
  • 10
    Glue the White ball fringe across the top edge of the mat, slightly lower than the actual edge. From the buttons in step 2, glue 5 Red buttons onto the gimp of the ball fringe for more color.
  • 11
    Glue the remaining buttons to the front of the Mat in a random pattern, 3 buttons in a cluster.
