  • Little Miss is a pretty good sleeper. However, she does need to be cuddly when she lays down. I think it runs in the family because my boys were/are the same way. When I came across Janiebee’s quilted nap mats, I knew she’d love one! offers a great selection of beautiful, well made nap mats for both boys and girls. They are seriously adorable! I had a hard time choosing one! I finally decided on the Sweet Pea mat. It arrived rolled up and tied with cute bows.

    Thanks for this post. I’m a newbie at sewing (i.e. just finished a 6 week beginner class) and I was able to follow your instructions. I made a mickey mouse nap mat for my 3 year old. He’s so excited and I’m happy I was able to make something with love just for him.

  • Really? Using Prudent Post’s blog to sell your mats? The huge difference in these and the nap mats using the foam insert is the cushy comfort of these nap mats. They are wonderfully soft and the three I have made have washed and worn wonderfully for several years.

    This is a great tutorial! We make childrens nap mat which use the pillow insert but velcro shut on one side to the padding can be removed. This makes them easier to machine wash.

     
         Sleep mats, rest mats, or nap mats are typically required in daycare or preschool classrooms. A sleep / rest / nap mat can be anywhere from 5/8in. thick to 2in. thick and vary in length, color, and style as well. We also carry cots in our cot section if you prefer cots. Also, be sure to check out the accessory section for sheets, blankets, and cot storage items! So, if you are starting a new center please call for a custom quote.

    To the prior Pat: I have made this nap mat 3 times now. It is wonderful but, at least in my machine, challenging because of the thickness if the batting. The worst part for me was the bias tape. I would think you should be able to serge it if the serger handles the thickness ok. But the bias tape does give it a nice finished look. if you do decide to use bias tape, I would go up to 1″ instead of the 1/2″ I did that last time and it was much easier. Hope this helps!

Linen Depot Direct Preschool Nap Mat - Pink

If you read the consumer reviews of some nap mats, you’ll find a lot of complaints about the material. Sometimes the inner material is too “Scratchy” and not soft enough to make your child feel comfortable. Try to look for ones with breathable cotton inner-linings.
