There are times in life when it takes the effort of more than one person to get a task accomplished. May this snackmat remind you of the fact that you are not alone and that together we can achieve a common goal. The center fabric is stipple quilted and the carrot body is appliqued. If you have never done applique designs before, it is very easy and we will show you how to do that. This snack mat is completely stitched in the hoop; no additional hand or sewing machine stitching required. There are three stitch files in your download. One with the full design as shown, another one without the wording, and a third version with the stipple quilted background, the top stitching, but no other design in the center.
