When looking on the internet for things to make for my little friend Bradley, I realized there is not a lot of DIY toys for little boys. I was sort of getting desperate and looking on Etsy when I saw this. I loved the way you could bring it anywhere to play and it looked relatively easy to make. Here are the supplies you will need:
2 15" by 14" pieces of fabric
First, take the 2, 15" by 14" pieces pin them right sides together, and sew them together along 3 of the four sides. Next, turn the piece inside out so the pretty fabric is showing. What I did after this was slip a piece of felt into the "pocket" because my fabric wasn't very thick. If you are using a thicker fabric, you can skip that step. Finally, you can sew the unstitched side close.
Now you have the base of your play mat. This next part is the "fun stuff"
