Little Princess Busy Mat

This is the first item I'm sharing that will be listed for sale in a future Etsy shop!  Woo hoo!  I am slowly building a stock of things to sell, including some felt food and more play mats.  I was hoping to open it this summer, but personal projects and planning for Rhys's birthday have slowed my progress.  I finished this mat a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to share it!

This mat is a little different from others that I've made.  I put a layer of quilt batting in between the felt and cotton to give it more body, and I used satin ribbon to tie the mat closed.  There are four activities to keep busy little girls entertained.  The felt shapes velcro onto their matching shapes or can be stored in the pocket .  The I Spy window is made with clear vinyl and there are 5 princess icons hidden in the beads.  The three zippers are great for little fingers (Rhys loves them!) and the strings of beads include three animal beads and are secured to the mat with eyelets.

PS - I'm in love with this princess crown fabric and I'm also making a blue and pink version that will be listed as well!  Keep an eye out at the end of summer and hopefully I'll have a shop open!
