I made a little mat for Ben for his bithday, totally thanks to my friend Rachel who showed me the one she made for her son and gave me 2 leftover tiny cars.
|I thought Ben could make more roads on the stripes.|
As soon as I acquired street fabric, the project went together very quickly. I used parts of the interfaced placket from this worn-out shirt to make the little garages. (The shirt reminds me that I have that delicious cupcake fabric in my stash, waiting for an idea for Genevieve. . . )
The best part is how much Ben loves the little toy. I put it in his church bag, but he begs to get it out betimes.
He's dressed in his birthday shirt and pants from Aunt Mel here - how fortunate that the navy boat shoes handed down from cousin Luke two years ago fit now. The shirt stays tucked in for approximately 2 minutes, but it's rumpled soft linen, so I like how it looks.
