Reading Nook

My 7 year old LOVES to read! I had seen some ways to make a nap mat on Pinterest, so I decided to make one for my son. He has bunk beds, so the top bunk was perfect for this. The base is wood, so I purchased a foam pad at target, then covered it with an old fitted sheet. Then I bought 4 pillows and 4 pillow cases. Lastly I got him a big comfy reading pillow.

Here is how I made the nap mat. I matched the side seams on the pillows. I made sure to match the seam allowances. Then I pinned and stitched through the seams, on the insides, so you can’t see the seams. It turned out perfect!
