Eternal Maker October- Little House Playmat

For October's visit to Eternal Maker, I have been looking forward to posting about their Little House Playmat project which is a week by week project in 5 instalments.
 I love all things 'house themed and I love this!   It is measures around 60 x 80cm  closed and would make a wonderful gift, a little different from a baby quilt!
 All the materials are listed in the project posts on the Eternal Maker blog, including the amazing Kokka house panel fabric which forms the inside:
They also list the other fabrics e.g. brick style for the front and interfacing/waddings that they stock to make the playmat but as ever there is room for creativity and some other prints and fabrics.  Here are a few ideas.
Wood effect fabric- for a nordic style house,   Michael Miller faux bois in grey
Clouds by Cosmo, a canvas cotton fabric
A drying room?  One of my favourite Heather Ross prints, Clothes line by Kokka
A toy room with house within houses, Cosmo Panda stripe
Friends to play and dressing up, Ann Kelle's Kids Adventure for Kaufman
And wall decor, Echino Frames
Tempting isn't it?  And Christmas making time is upon us!  Keep an eye on Eternal Maker blog for the next instalment.

  1. I can't wait to get started on my house play mat, the panel is so so cute! Just need to stock up on loads of bias tape!

  2. What a gorgeous mat I would just love to make one of these, only problem is that I would want to keep it for myself! Fab
    Thanks so much
    Lots of love

  3. This is the cutest thing I've seen since I bought some Hello Kitty fabric by Kokka past weekend! I've got to find some here in the US!

  4. This is a fantastic idea for a playmat. Thank you for showing these beautiful fabrics too, I've seen some I really like.
