I decided to try making one myself for my craft room. I have so many pieces of scrap fabric I figured this would be a great way to use them! I just pulled from the bin, 50 different pieces to use! It was so hard to resist the urge to coordinate it all.
First I downloaded the states from Dream a little bigger she has each state ready to download and import into the silhouette!!
You can then cut them out using your silhouette cameo machine!
I couldn't decide exactly how I wanted to do this so I tried cutting the fabric with the silhouette directly first.
The only problem with this is it was very tedious to cut each scrap to fit the state and then arrange them all the right way on the mat.
Next try- cut the states out of heat n bond, iron onto fabric and hand cut! That worked!
Once I had all my shapes sized to fit like a puzzle & cut out, I appliquéd them to the burlap!
I will also be adding this to my shop in March after I get back from a much need week in the Dominican!!! Stay tuned!
