Spinning can be surprisingly messy with all the loose bits of fluff and vegetable matter that pops out of the fibre while you're spinning. I made myself a lap mat, and recently my mom borrowed it for marathon spinning at the cottage. I figured I should make her one, too.

The fabric was a charm pack called Fandango. Great name for such a lively collection of prints.
