Sew Cuddly Book Blog Hop: Shannon Fabrics + Bobbie Norby – Cuddle Bath Mat

Hello!  Welcome to stop No. 12 on the Sew Cuddly Blog Hop featuring Judy Gauthier’s book Sew Cuddly and the Shannon Fabrics Brand Ambassadors. I’m so excited to share my bath mat project with you!

For my bath mat, I choose Splash! Cuddle® Belize, Starbright Cuddle® in Hot Pink/Iris and Luxe Cuddle® Marble in Belize.  The mermaids are just perfect for a fun bathroom accessory! 

When it came time to pick a layout for my mat I decided to use the Fabulous 5 Cuddle® quilt kit cutting instructions (variation #2). After all, the bath mat is similar to a quilt, but it's laid out on the floor.

The Fabulous 5 pattern is available as a free download on the Shannon website and it's perfect for showing off the cute prints with varied strip sizes. There are also nine different Fabulous 5 Cuddle® kits available! The kits would be perfect for the bath mat, and they are all written to be quilt-as-you-go Sew and Flip projects!
