The Preppy Napper

Sweet Princess Ella started pre-school this week. Yesterday was her first day. I just can't believe how big she is getting. She has been so excited about going to "school".










One of the items listed in the parent packet was to bring a nap mat and little pillow for "rest time". Marci found a little mat and purchased it for her.

You've seen them. The red and blue reversible nap mats...











Hmmmm ... not too comfy, more importantly, not too cute!
What to do?
Marci asked me if I could make a fabric slip cover for her. After much searching, we we finally found the perfect quilted fabric on sale. One side is pink and green paisley and the other side is a paisley stripe.

I used the extra cotton fabric from their dresses to make a border at the top of the slip cover so a zipper could be added for washing convenience.
