First I started by measuring out my flashy green felt, and my o-so-crystal clear blue pond. I used canvas as the outside fabric...must be tough for boys...right?
Then I added a very vibrant red pocket and ric rac trim to cover the seam and sewed away. I made four pockets for the cars and put two straps for closure on the cozy.
Top stiched it all the way around, and don't get me wrong I love to sew but man did this take
F-o-R-e-V-e-R! Well, ok, maybe not but it seemed that way!
I then drew a nifty little race track out of black patterned fabric and used iron transfer to put it on the felt. I was a little nervous that it would burn the felt but it didn't (thank goodness). And as an added bonus I didn't have to sew it on. I am sure if you wanted to you could, I however do not feel overly confident in my curvy sewing.
And just because I wanted a little extra texture I added some grass out of a lovely grassy green embrodiery floss, cute and fun.Other Car rolls:
