Hey everyone. I couldn't figure out where exactly to post this, but I think here is the closest.

My friend needed a nap mat for her daughter for preschool rest time. I love the fabric on this nap mat; it's so girly and fun. I made this tonight for her:









Thanks for looking Smiley

That is AWESOME!!!  Way better than those ugly red and blue plastic mats we used when I was in kindergarten.  Did you use a pattern or just make it up as you went?  My little boy is only 6 months but I might make him one for the future.

Oh my! I really like that! even though my little guy is only 9 weeks (wait, he'll be 10 weeks this sunday!) old, I would love to make him one. Do you have a tute?

Oooh I love that fabric. So girly and ultra feminine. And the shoulder strap is a great idea.

That is so clever. Very good job, and cute fabric too Smiley

In my part of the world the kids usually nap outdoors in their stroller. Gotta think about where I might use something like this because Id really like to make one.
