At rest time, he will imagine himself swinging through the jungle with Mowgli and his beastie pals under the blazing Africa sun. While studying the charming Jungle Book characters and remembering his own adventure in the picture pocket, he soon will catch 40 winks --or hopefully at least lie quietly.

  1. Fold each sky fabric piece in half, each measuring 12" x 23". Fabric above the fold will serve as lining when embroidery is complete.
  2. Mark line 1 ½" above and parallel to lower raw edges with washout marking pen. Embroidery designs must sit ½" or more above marked line.
  3. Draw line ½" from each short side. This is the side seam allowance. Embroidery stitches must come no closer than ½" from the side of this marked line. The given placement measurements will keep the designs in proper position.
  4. Mark 3 ½" square in each upper corner, against side seam allowance line. Draw diagonal line in each square as shown. This corner will be folded under along diagonal line in construction process.
  5. Open folded piece and mark placement of designs on the lower half, with crease at top. The remaining half above the crease will serve as lining to cover the embroidery. Set second sky fabric piece aside.

Embroidery

  1. Create name file. When sizing the name, keep in mind that the two Jungle Book embroideries, Baloo and Kaa, will take up almost 6 ½". Though the piece is 23" wide, the embroidered width, including the name, should not exceed 22".
  2. Mark the sides ½" from raw edge, bottom 1 ½" from raw edge, fold line 12" above bottom edge, and corners 3 ½" square, as top panel. Also mark center for name placement.
  3. Embroider bottom panel and continue as on top panel: add gingham border, baste in place, stitch rickrack over folded gingham, add grass borders.
  4. Apply memory pocket in chosen spot with straight stitch, leaving top open for photo insertion. Stitch very close to edge of vinyl. Take care not to overlap marked corner squares.
  5. Stitch rick rack over vinyl edges.

Susanna, I'm glad you like this project. For a young preschooler, the embroidered name might help a young preschooler learn to recognize his name and help him to stay put on his cot. He might even rest!

This is such a useful project. I like the way you worked in the elastic to accommodate different sized cots. With the embroidered name there is no way to get it confused with other sheets. Thank you, Janice
