A Playmat for Ethan

Last Wednesday it was my birthday, and a friend took me over to the fabric store to do some shopping. I went with a project in mind, a playmat that I had seen on the Purl Bee, that I wanted to make for a friend of mine who is expecting a baby; however, when I walked into the store the first thing I saw was this adorable owl fabric that perfectly matched the nursery of a different friend’s baby.

So I left that day with supplies to make two playmates. Since Ethan, the inhabitant of the owl-themed nursery has already been born, I made his mat first, and loved the result.

Here are the fabrics I used:

1/2 yard Stitch of Color 23205 13 Acid Green

1/2 yard Stitch of Color 23206 26 Tomato


1 yard of Urban Zoologie 10348 Bermuda


1 craft size Quilters Dream Cotton Batting

For those of you who are local, all supplies were purchased at Thimble Pleasures in Chapel Hill. I love that store.
