Introduction: Fabric Marble Maze

Picture of Fabric Marble Maze

So I needed to have something quick and easy for the coming family visit I'm going on and I've been thinking about this for something that the 7 cousins would like.I also saw this on pinterest and decided to have a go at it.

Step 1: Get Your Supplies

Picture of Get Your Supplies

Fabric
Thread
Chalk pencil for marking the lines
Pins
Ribbon
Lighter to seal the ends of said ribbon
Scissors
Either a button,marble, bead,or small object to let you move through the maze
And last but not least a Sewing machine.


Step 2: Start!

This is one I'm making myself for the long trip to the visit.
Sew the right sides together and put the ribbon inside with the loop facing the right sides.
Then top-stitch after turning inside out,remember to put your object inside before sealing it shut.

Step 3: Maze It!

Draw where you want your lines to be with the chalk and make sure the object would fit within the lines.I tried to make the lines before checking and had to erase all my lines,so this is kinda important.

Step 4: Keep Going!

Sew over the lines you made the best you can , remembering to backstich.You can always take a line out with a seam ripper.This is the most tedious step and could take some time depending on how complicated you want it to be.

Step 5: All Done!

The object of the maze is to try to either get from one end to another or go around the entire maze.
Mine is Halloween themed because I just couldn't resist having something spooky and easy to do.

If you made it big enough to be a car blanket, you would have something to keep a kid not only warm on a long trip but busy also. You could put several buttons inside so that the object might be to get them all into the center or into the 4 corners. I could see this becoming a child's favorite security blanket. Great idea!

That's a great idea ! But I only have 2 days to make 7 of them so i'm going for short and sweet.

I know how that is. All the kids in my family are too old but I am thinking that this would be perfect once the next generation starts to arrive. I will be keeping this one in mind for the future. I was thinking that I could piece the top and use polar fleece for the back. Leave out the batting. Maze quilt. Brilliant!
