My mom made a car mat for us when we were kids, and even as a girl I remember playing with it a lot and really enjoying it. When I saw this one on Homemade By Jill, I had to make one for the boys. And I have been sewing like mad the past few nights to get it done by Christmas.
An old school house and our Church Building.
A Barn and Silo.
Daddy's School and Work.
A Fire Station.
The Zoo and Zoo Train.
The two things I would have done differently are: 1. Interfaced the green fabric before doing anything else. By the time I started sewed things on it was too late. It would have kept the mat flat and decreased the puckers when doing the zig zag stitching. 2. Used a different kind of fabric paint for the road, or I would sew the road on with fabric. It made the mat way too bumpy.
Argh, but as the say, hindsight is 20/20. Don't you just hate that?
