    Check this:
    You can take it into restaurants for the little ones, or to a friends house. Johnny and Susie will have lots of fun while you have your tea !! Roll it up and put in your home made tote bag (smile)

    Very cute idea. Bookmarked this so I can make them for the grandkids (not born yet, but one due in August and one due in September).

    I have made many, many of these both in placemat size, mug rug size, play mat size and even put it on the side of tote bags (think grocery list, kids car tote, etc.).

    Make sure you buy the heavier kind. There is a thin kind sold by some fabric stores that does not hold up, cracks, etc.

    Get the best even if you think it costs too much. It comes in small pieces or by the yard and is easy to cut and stitch.

    Check the pictures section for a few of those I made.
