It's Blog with Friends time again!! WOO HOO!! I am so happy to be back with a new tutorial for you!! It feels like it has been AGES since I had a new tutorial!! I think the last one was a Blog with Friends!
Anyway, this time around I have an easy peasy nap mat cover for you. Super fast, super easy!!!
My cousin's little boy is starting preschool and they requested that the parents have covers for the kids' nap mats.
What I Used
Less than 2 yards of fabric
With the fabric folded in half, like it comes off the bolt, I put the nap mat on it and cut the fabric.
You want to leave several inches at the top and bottom as well as the sides for seam allowance, room for it to be folded, and room for it to spread out when the child lies down on it.
Sew the zipper in the top.
I guess I'm a little rusty at this tutorial thing because this is the only picture I took of the zipper process.
You are going to fold the fabric over at the top by 1/4" and press.
Fold over 1/2" and press.
Place the zipper on the wrong side of the fabric and pin in place.
Sew the zipper.
I did a double row of stitches for reinforcement.
With wrong sides together and your zipper open, sew the 2 open sides together.
Turn right side out!
Slide your mat inside.
Zip it up!
So, what do you think?? Fast and easy????
