The highlight for me was setting out the playmat on Christmas morning and having my son run out to see it. He stopped and just took it in. Then he started pointing out all of his favorite places!
"My house! D's House! Cupcake store! Library! Fire Station! Market! I go to market now, mommy!" And he handed me invisible fruit bought from the image of the market stand.
I was so proud. I ended up finishing it with a quilt binding that he unknowingly picked out at the fabric store last week. He told me he wanted something made with orange stripes, so that's what he got. Here are a few pictures of him enjoying the project!
Also, since I already sell maps over on etsy, I added a listing for a custom play mat over there as well. Because every kid totally needs one of these!
