With Ramadan just around the corner I decided to make a small prayer mat for my son.
I wanted it to be really nice and soft so I used fleece for it. I also tried doing applique but it didn't work well for me..
I ironed my fabric onto the iron on paper and cut out the shapes for a Mosque. Because I could not iron the shapes onto fleece (pssssst..i didn't know that..I tried to iron it on fleece and a pink gooey thing stuck onto my iron..oops have to clean that up as well ) So to tack it on I used yarn and a big needle to secure it onto the fleece.
Like 99.9 % of my projects this one was also a 'lets make tea and start a project'. So I did not have all the materials ideally required..but worry not I can always dig something out..like I did not have polyester or batting or anything to pad the mat so I used oven filters instead! Cheap and handy! They look just like batting don't they?
My son's own prayer mat. May Allah make him a practicing muslim and accept all his prayers :)
