Handmade Playmat for Baby K!

Here is the playmat I made for my boyfriend’s baby niece, who turned one this weekend!  YAY!  I was determined to make a handmade gift for her so I was happy when I came across this wonderful tutorial from my favorite craft blog, The Purl Bee for inspiration (this blog is created by my favorite crafter, Joelle Hoverson, who is also the co-owner of the lovely Purl Soho).

Perhaps the most challenging part about this sewing project was matching the two fabrics (I usually end up spending hours trying to find the best combination and get a major headache) but other than that, it was a fun and tear-free project to make, and I absolutely love the way it turned out. All fabrics are from Heather Baily’s Nicely Jane line that I purchased online.  I absolutely adore her style!

It feels like it was only yesterday that Baby K came into this world, and at age one, she is as cute as ever!  Happy birthday, sweet little angel!

Fabric Information:

Nicey Jane Picnic Bouquet Moss (green floral)
Nicey Jane Dream Dot Celery (green and pink dots)

Nicey Jane Picnic Bouquet Tangerine (yellow floral)
Nicey Jane Dream Dot Splash Blue (blue and yellow dots)

P.S. Please meet Yonda, my panda friend, who made her blog debut here today.

  1. Hi Saori! I knew you would like the fabric! It’s by designer Heather Baily and I love her! I know, Yonda probably though she was playing in the grass! LOL.


  2. Hi Yuka-san!

    I’m so happy to hear that baby K liked the gift! Kevin shared the photos with me and I melted! She is the cutest baby ever. I can’t wait to see her in the panda gear too. 🙂

    The birthday party was great! Thanks for allowing to share baby K’s special day!
