Puppy place mat

Reminder: don't try to do things when you are tired! I'm working on a placemat for my cute dog and I started  binding it using the pillow case method.
Why? I had the binding ready and everything so I had to unpick it and then the backing fabric I used was a nightmare and was fraying out of control.
So this is what I ended up with and decided it was time to go to bed.
Woke up the next day and things went alot smoother. I love applique'

And so does my dog! He is named after Danny Zuko from Grease.
I did an all over swirl stitching.

The backing is, well..i'll just say it.... ugly but good thing no one will see the back. I like the binding though...
and most importantly....

Zuko likes it!!!
