I saw THIS marble maze on Pinterest and thought it would make a perfect addition to our Church bag. But of course I need one for each kid! I wanted to do it out of a stretchy material, but I didn't want to buy any. One day it dawned on me to take some of the clothes I was going to donate and use them as material! FREE! YAY! The only thing I will do differently with the next one is sewing on the circles (start and finish marks) first before sewing the 2 sides together. I now have to figure out what I am going to use for the start and finish because I forgot to do it ahead.
First off I sat down and drew out a maze. It really wasn't too hard. I made all 3 different so that they wouldn't get boring. Then I cut out the material about 1/2 inch bigger than the maze on each side.

Then sew on the lines through the paper.
When I was done sewing all the lines (remember to back stitch each line so they don't come out) I tore the paper off. This part I had to be extra careful and was the hardest part of the process (it's an easy project, so it wasn't that bad.) I placed my finger on the stitching and pulled the other side of the paper like trying to tare a coupon! Especially my Costco coupons that you have to do extra carefully! Once you get one side pulled up the other side of the stitching comes quite easily.
