A bit of last minute needle and thread

Yesterday I finished a bit of last minute sewing before we set off on holidays. But nooooooo it's not the crisp white resort pants that I had imagined me strolling around in the Fijian sunset, but a Car Caddy for the boy-child. If the truth be known I meant to sew this for him as a Christmas present, but well, umm...time kinda gotta away from me. Never mind, I think it does the job nicely as a pre-holiday surprise...and it helps me limit the cars that he brings along to 6...hehehe.

Kuka sent me the link to one from So you think you're crafty ...and it then led me to Little Gems. It was so ridiculously easy to make I think I'll start doing some more already for little boy gifts for this year. I used scraps for the inner, felt for the "road" at the top and some lovely soft denim as the outer fabric. I used some fabric paint for the line markings on the road, and figure if they give out in the future I can use some double-sided fusing and add some felt markings.

Well that's it for me for a week or so, Happy New Year everyone!
