I made 2 of these in different types of batiks. I just make a template that happened to work out! I made these in a day - probably about 36 x 36. I love these to take to the park or in the car or stroller, they are not too big or bulky and falling all over the place. My daughters love them. I know they will outgrow them eventually but for a days worth of work, totally worth it. Rayann is my second daughter, she is now 7.5 months old.
