The reason for the BOY fabric
So after my complete waste of time trip to Spotlight* yesterday, I came home and searched through the stash instead.
I couldn't find any car fabric, but I did find an offcut of this cute little heavy machinery fabric... plus the stripey fabric for the binding, some navy cotton drill, and blue felt.
....so I set about making a birthday pressie, loosely based on this tutorial.
There are eight little pockets for Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars, and you can fold the flap over.....
....and roll it up. Perfect for a bit of play on the run.
I decided to use velcro for the closure as the birthday boy is a bit too young to be tying things up just yet.
* I have sent a complaint email to Spotlight to find out what is going on.
** Message to Moo Moo - don't worry - Aunty CurlyPops will not be including your hot wheels cars with the pressie. They're all heading back to your toy box!
