We love Bev Mayo’s handy cutting mat bag, and so do our customers! The log cabin design is easy to master with Bev’s helpful YouTube tutorials, and the padding ensures your cutting mat travels well and is protected. Why not get prepared for when both you and your craft supplies can hit the road again!
The bag will fit a 24” x 18” cutting mat with the actual size of the bag being 20” x 24” (51cm x 60cm). There is room to spare for your cutting ruler and other items so creating patchwork on the move is made a little easier, and you can easily store all your tools together. The log cabin pattern (and the rest of the bag) is made from four light tone and four dark tone fabrics. You can use your favourite colour scheme – purple and teal are very popular choices. This is also the perfect project to use up your scraps.
Here’s what you’ll need:
25cm of three light tone fabrics
1m of another light tone fabric
25cm of two dark toned fabrics
50cm of two more dark toned fabrics
2 pieces of calico (25″ x 21″)
2 pieces of wadding (25″ x 21″)
2 small pieces of wadding (2″ x 37″)
These are some of our collections that have been used to create this bag by our customers –

Have you seen Adriafil’s fun and creative Pintau Aran yarn! It’s so colourful, we knew we had to make a little something to jazz up even the most boring outfit and keep us a little warmer on a chilly spring day.
A beautiful scene of a river bank bordered by lovely plants and trees with the turret of an old manor/ church or castle in the distance behind the hills. Cranes fly across the scene with a small murmuration of birds above and a variety of riverside creatures spotted along the river’s edge.
Leaping rabbits, frogs and waddling ducks as well as otters floating off downstream create a natural idyll. Lily pads, iris flowers and other river loving plants are used to create the effect of the river.
Eye catching prints feature a detailed dragonfly repeat, thousands of starlings all swooping and diving in unison, and a brown hare with a sweet little cotton-like tail in various positions, intertwined with cotton plants in brown and white with silhouettes of leafy plants.
Kingfishers, cranes and dragonflies fly and land amongst the plants in the water. The cobbled stones and faded bridge give the illusion of a vast river filled with an abundance of wildlife, including the sweet little water vole, sat with in the reeds whilst munching on them.
Honey Hunt sees Pooh floating with his red balloon, patting his belly next to a big pot of honey and sat with his elbows resting on the honey pot whilst bee’s fly over him on an off-white background.
Out With Friends pictures Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet, and Pooh playing in an old hollow log, walking together hand in hand, and other enjoyable activities on a pale mint background.
