All of the blocks are made in the hoop. Detailed instructions to make the Embroider Something Mat from start to finish are included in a PDF file. This set includes 9 small pockets, 12 pocket labels, 1 large pocket, 1 large pocket side, 1 large pocket back, 2 pocket tabs, 3 magnetic tool strip sections, and 1 base block.
The mat shown in the pictures measures 39” wide by 31” deep. The drop (from the tool strip to the bottom of the pockets) is 9″. Samples of different size mats have been included in the instructions. If you make the mat without the magnetic tool strip, the drop is 7″.
I used the following fabric to make this mat:
Green Fabric: Riley Blake Designs Pattern C4580 Bloom and Bliss by Nadra Ridgeway
White with Blue Dots: Caravan Roundup by Mary Jane for Moda Stock #11645
Green and Blue Striped Fabric: Essentially Yours by Moda

Hoop Size: 5×7

I couldn’t resist putting a bunch of Spooky the Cat clips together. He just loves these pockets – take a look!
