SEW Amazing!

I have had this desire to learn how to sew and now I have the sewing machine to do it. My mother gave me her old sewing machine and this is the first project I completed ALL BY MYSELF. It is a car play mat for my boys. I put 6 car size pockets in it for the cars and then 2 bigger pockets for whatever else.

This fabric was perfect because the road is the right size for my boys to play cars on. Both my boys love Lightening McQueen and they love to play with cars.

After all the fun playing, you just put all the cars in their own pocket and then just roll it up and tie it and then put it in the church bag and bring it to sacrament meeting the next week. It could also be used for long car trips. My boys love it already!

This is the first test drive for Alex. He LOVED it!

You are so creative! I am SO impressed! Who knew you could teach school AND sew ;) I am glad that you are keeping busy - just in case 3 kids wasn't enough!
