Have you seen those cute little carriers that have a bunch of slots for crayons and they roll up? I made one for my sweet girl not too long ago for church, and it got the "wheels" in my head turning, I needed something like that for my son and his cars!
Max is a little (a lot) obsessed with pretty much anything that goes. So we need to have cars with us all the time. I think we've come up with the perfect solution! Here's a tutorial on a little car carrier I made, I hope you enjoy it!
Car fabric: one strip 5.5 x 10.5 and one large piece for backing 16.5x10.5
Black fabric: 4 strips cut at 3.5 x 10.5
polkadot fabric: 1 strip 10.5 x 4
Yellow or white felt for road
Fusible interfacing (or a glue gun)
finished size: 16x10
Find your outside piece of fabric and fold your car carrier in thirds, check where you want a ribbon and sew the ribbon about 5 inches in place.
Then take your large car fabric and sew right sides together to your road and pocket piece, leaving a hole about 2.5 inches big to turn it right side out.
After you've turned it right side out, stick someting in there (like a pencil or pen) to make the corners pointy and then fold under that 2.5 inch hole and sew that baby shut.
Hopefully this will make your toddler as happy as it's made mine. He loves to put the cars in their parking spots, take them for a spin and then park them again. It's so fun seeing the imaginary play going on! These pictures were taken while we were on an airplane... as you can see, it works awesome for sitting in tight confined spaces!
