Last week I posted about a “hot wheels” carrier for my 5 year old grandson. After it was made, I decided to make a playmat to use with his cars. I found some great fabric on EBay, and was able to win the bids. It came in the mail yesterday afternoon, and today I assembled the playmat. Grandpa had decided it needed to have pellon instead of batting, and I agreed. I made a run to the nearest Walmart that carries fabric (16 miles away) and got the necessary, and a lot of unnecessary item(s). (while I was there, I picked up a couple of other pieces of pellon to use as stabalizer for the embroidery machine….and then I found some more cute “dress” fabric for little sundress….and the other household stuff you tend to gather into your cart at that store….look, I got out the door for a mere $100, so I felt like I did well!).
Oh; the hotwheels play mat….that’s right….the story is about that…..
I bonded the pellon to the wrong side of one of the fabrics, stitched the two fabrics together (right sides together); then turned right side out, and did some top stitching all over the mat. Didn’t want anything to shift in play or in the wash.
So; here it is; a two sided play mat for hot wheels etc!
Size is about 40 x 32, and it folds up nicely to take along.
Still debating if I can “attach” it to his little car carrier I made last week, or if I should make a set of handles and a tie for this. Will decide tomorrow I suppose!
Keep on stitching!!
