For the 2 Table Centre Mats I used 100% Cotton Fabric, Rayon, Metallic and Cotton Thread, Foils, Paint, Sequins and Beads. For the Bag I usesd wooden handles and magnetic snaps and lined it with one of the fabrics used in the autumns leaves mat, there are 2 internal pockets.

Relax and enjoy the no rules part!!!
