Baby Playmat

I'm enjoying sewing for the littlest one. For a quick Christmas gift, I stitched up a playmat. The two IKEA prints (ANNAMOA) were scored a year or so ago (from an enormous bag of bolt ends scored from the as-is section for just $5) and seemed perfect for baby with the various animals and graphic prints. Initially, I planned to use just one fabric panel and back it with fleece but soon realized that would be a major lint collector. Instead I pulled out the sea animal print and made a reversible mat. I did add a fleece layer inside for some cushion.

Rounded corners, packaged bias tape and a few ribbon loops for hooking on toys finished this cute playmat.

And of course it is the cutest with a smiling baby on top!
