Travel Playmat

Our dear friends have a son that also turned one-year old this week...in fact, his sweet Momma delivered just three days prior to me. We were blessed to go through over half of our pregnancies together and helped us form a great bond.  That said, this family is very special to us.  I wanted to give their handsome boy something made with love, just for him, so I scoured the 'net and inspiration struck.  I made that little guy his very own Travel Playmat.  It's made from felt (including a few scraps from Miss A's playhouse).  The mat measures approximately 18"x30" (forgot to take final measurements.)

We also picked up a set of the cutest little cars (Tonka Chuck and Friends Rescue Fleet; we got our set at Target).  The mat and cars fit in their very own bag, featuring Little Man's initial.  I love the way everything came out and apparently so does Miss A...I think I'll be making another one in the very near future! 

Happy Birthday Little Man!!  We love you!


I'm linking up again this week!  Visit these sites for great crafty inspiration!

So cute! I love this handmade version way more than the store bought (and expensive) ones! I found you on Made By You Mondays and am now following you.

Thank you so much for your comments! It was such a simple project, but I love it! I'll be making another one in the next few weeks for Miss A.

This is such a cute idea. I'm sure my nephews would love that! Did you make it so it packs into a bag? That's adorable. :)

April@ Natural Nester said...

Thanks Ani! Yes, it packs in the bag with the E on it, so he can take it all wherever he goes.
