Still crafting!!

I made this quilt for my friend in Colorado who had triplets this past spring...yep just now getting around to it!! But I personalized it by adding his name appliqued by the sea horse. 1 down 2 to go!!!

This is Samuel's nap mat for school. It's made out of fleece but could be cotton or flannel too, I just made a sleeve for a purchased school mat with a travel pillow encased in the top and an added blanket that's attached to the side! He loves this mat and the best part is it all rolls up in a nice package with a carrying handle that can all slide right off the plastic mat and into the washer!!
If you've got a preschooler needing a nap mat makeover let me know!!! This is one of those must have items.
I found a web sight that had a tutorial on french seams...never heard of such a thing!! So I tried it out making these cute pillow cases for the boys, it was AWESOME!! Not only did the pillow cases come out looking like store bought but It took less time to sew than it did to do all the cutting of the fabric!! Who knew the French knew so much. I think I'll be making some more of these sweet things as gifts!! Any takers?
