yesterday i wasn't feeling very well and needed to nourish my soul with a simple sewing project. i decided to try my hand at the fringe playmat from amanda soule's handmade home.
i wanted to use a particular vintage fabric and a chenille backing, but the fabric piece was a bit too small and not exactly soft. i was about to give up when i spotted a receiving blanket our doula gave to us. i thought it would be a nice way to keep our doula's love close, while using what i had on hand.
i did not have cotton batting on hand, so i just used two more pieces of flannel. it is more of a blanket than a mat, i think.
i think it is pretty fun, and i think tristan does too!
