Roll up chalk mat

My first attempt at sewing all by myself!!! I made a roll up chalk mat for my niece for her birthday. I have to say I am rather happy with my efforts (if you don’t look too closely!). I used tutorials from Maggie Muggins Designs and Thimble. I basically got chalk cloth, some beautiful farmyard fabric, some backing fabric, some ribbon and bias tape then sewed it all together. I bought these super cute little handmade stickers too to put on. If you don’t want to make your own you can buy beautiful ones from Ecomoon. Mine doesn’t really look like the Ecomoon ones but hey I’m only a baby. I’m going to make John one next with the cars fabric I bought.
