The 5th project in the Handmade Home Project is finished. It's the baby's fringed play mat.
I used fabric from my stash. The white background polka dot one is a sheet.
I did things a little differently than Amanda does in the book. But that's okay-she says everyone would have their own take on each of the projects.
Amanda made her's with a light colored sheet, cotton batting and a piece of a bedspread. Then you are supposed to get your kids involved and have them make drawings on the top with fabric markers. Cute idea.
I used fabrics from my stash (including a sheet) and a piece of polyester fabric for the center. Also I made it reversible. Even though there's a little pink in the print-I think this would be appropriate for a boy as well as a girl.
See those little "fringes" on the edges of the play mat? If I remember correctly, babies do like to play with little things like this.
So, bring on the baby showers. I'm ready!☺
