Jackson’s Monster Play Mat

I saw Soozs’ tutorial for a drawstring play mat a while back, and it’s been on my project wish list for a while. If I had known how easy this was to make, I wouldn’t have waited so long!

Katie and I were at the fabric store last weekend, buying supplies for her new sewing class. (One of her Christmas presents from Mommy & Daddy.) We saw some cute monster fabric that was 50% off, so I finally bought supplies to make a play mat too.

Last Tuesday while Jackson napped, I made this entire play mat in under an hour.IMGP7810

It’s reversible – monsters on one side, and a solid light blue on the other.IMGP7854

It turned out so well, I’m thinking of making some as birthday gifts. I figured out the price and it came to about $12 for everything. My only confusion is what to do with the long drawstring when the mat is tied up into a bag to carry items. For now, I’m just wrapping it around itself.IMGP7819

Next time, I think I’ll use a heavier fabric to give it a little more weight. Do you like it?

Cute! That would be a fantastic baby gift too. I personally think Gray would use that more than Lo!
