Monster Nap Mat for MY Lil' Monster!

 I made this super adorable and playful nap mat a bit ago as a pattern test for Izzy & Ivy Designs. It's part of the new collection called "Muddy Max" that is soon to be available. (And OH SO STINKIN' CUTE!!!) Well, since then, it's been sitting in a basket by my desk waiting for the binding so it would be all finished and ready to use. And let me assure you that my son didn't let me forget.....rather, I received almost DAILY reminders!!! :)
Well, thanks to the extra nudge of our FAMILY focus this month, it is now finished!
 Here's my lil' dude modeling how it's used....not that he dares to take a nap anymore!

The nap mat is part of the new pattern Monster Mash that will be available for purchase very soon. The nap mat is only 1 of the projects included too! There's also PJs, a backpack and an awesome monstery quilt that are all super FUN!
One of the greatest features is that when not in use, it can be rolled up and tucked into a pouch that is sewn on the back to store as a pillow.

My favorite part by far though is that sweet face!
I made this guy with soft & fuzzy fabric that I think was just perfect and adds to his personality!

Ah....SIGH. It really is nice to mark something like this DONE and watch your fella run off with it happily. :) This was my first time sewing binding on by hand, and while I had dreaded it, now I have to admit that it was not only simple to do, it was even enjoyable! Talking myself closer and closer to that first quilt every day! :)

Just a week left of our FAMILY sewing month now and it has been such fun for me! I have loved seeing all of your projects that you've shared on facebook too. Keep 'em coming!

Absolutely adorable! My boy is all grown up now but he would have loved something like this when he was little.

That is so stinking cute! If my nephew was a couple years younger I could totally see myself making this. I used to love hand sewing bindings - too hard with my RA now though :/

Such a fun idea and so practical, Kristy. Would you mind letting me know when this pattern's released, as I'd definitely like to make this one up.

So cute Kristy. I made one years ago(not as cute as your's) but they called it a "quillow", cross between a pillow and a quilt. I love this pattern. So cute for little folks!
Your model did a great job ad well!

I've pinned this and am thinking of making it for the 2 in 1 Challenge I'm doing next month.
