After making sundresses for the girls; I thought I needed to follow through with something that I have been meaning to make for my grandson.
Remember those fat quarters I won? Well, I put 3 to good use today! Fabric is Robotex Tools lines, designed by Mint Blossom for Northcott. These 3 fat quarters were part of a group of 10 I won last month! Thanks Quilt Shop Navigator and Ellicott City Sew and Vac. My daughter suggested my grandson might like something of that sort…so, I knew the perfect fabric….
I saw lots of examples on the web in various blogs for Hot Wheels carriers. I decided to use my fat quarters, and let the size and shape of the fabric guide me.
Love the robots!
I put the Gears fat quarter and the Robots fat quarter together, with a bit of batting in between and machine quilted. I built the pockets by cutting the fat quarter in half, added some fusing to one half for a little body. Stitched them up and added 1 at the top and one at the bottom gears blue fabric. Added some binding (red with stars from al different fabric line)built some handles; a little velcro for closing;….and ta-da….
Special thanks to Grandpa for the loan of a cool hot wheel to test the pockets. I advised he may have to select a few new ones before I put this caddy in the mail!
