Kindermat Cover with Pillow Tutorial

I finally completed a sewing project. Woohoo. This one was completed out of necessity, but it did get my creative juices flowing.

Miller needed a cover for his kindermat. His feet hung off the bottom of the mat, so I thought I would add a built-in pillow case to make it a little bit longer. I took photos so that I could include a tutorial.



2 yards of fabric (I used flannel)


Travel Size pillow

Kindermat 1

The selvage edge does not fray so you don't have to worry about fraying on the pillowcase.

Kindermat 3

Kindermat 4

I don't have a very good picture of the next step, but all you do is sew along the long side starting where you made the mark for the pillowcase. If the cover is a little loose, you can stitch along the folded edge too. Then turn it right side out and sew along the line you made for the pillow.

It's hard to see the words in this photo, but it says center velcro and sew in place.

We are officially ready for kindergarten now.

I am happy to report that when I picked Miller up from his first day of kindergarten, he declared "I love it".

that is really impressive. I remember those from when I was a kid, but didn't know they still used them! You did a great job. I just started a new link party on my blog today and I'd be honored if you'd link up! Have a lovely day, Maria

Very cute idea!!!

carrie said...

YES! I'm so glad he loved it - and hope he continues to love it. And the mat is awesome. I so wish we still had rest time...maybe if I made a little rest mat I could take a nap right about now. :-)

Rose and Heather said...

Thanks so much for linking up!
We are going to keep this going every Tuesday...
Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun, so invite your friends.

Amy Kirchhoff said...

Thank you for this! I've been searching and searching for a good Kindermat cover tutorial. I've made lots of roll up nap mats before but not this kind. So glad to have this. :)

Hi, friend! You've got so much creativity in your blog and I'm admiring all your creative posts. Can you please share them with us at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop? Hope to see you there at the party :)

I love it! That was a great way to add some length to the mat. Our kids didn't have mats for Kindergarten. They were told to bring a towel and then they just sacked out on the floor. Sounds comfy doesn't it?

You are a lifesaver! It is the day before school starts and I thought I checked off everything on the list until I discovered I needed a kindermat cover too. Your tutorial was quick and easy. Thank you so much. My son absolutely loves his (and I love it too).

Thank you! This was really helpful. I added Velcro to the pillow side to close it off, and also a strap with a snap to hold everything closed once it is folded.
