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!
