The Buy More Save More event is here!

Playmats are a great way to keep little ones entertained at home or on-the-go—just add toy cars, stuffed animals or play food! This is your chance to dream up a creative activity mat that will engage toddler or preschool children’s imaginations. You can set your design as a center repeat for this challenge, just make sure your entry is set to one yard (42” x 36”) and fills the entire space.


Overview

Need some inspiration? Spoonflower designer and maker Anda shows you how it’s done with this tutorial from The Spoonflower Quick-Sew Project Book.
