Would you believe me if I said that a ferocious animal rug would be the perfect addition to any kid's room? Well, it's true! This Plush Animal DIY Play Mat would not only be an adorable nursery decorating idea, but also could double as a DIY birthday gift for your child--talk about two for the price of one! While this tutorial looks intimidating, the project uses beginner skills and only takes about a day to complete. Plus, this play rug is a great sewing project to get creative with, and your kids will be excited to help you decide what animal to make. A project this cute can't not be worthwhile!

This would look adorable in my nephew's room! His nursery is animal-themed, so it would totally fit. I love how this pattern suits a variety of ages, as a play mat for babies or a cute rug for a toddler's or child's room.
