Toy Car Holder

Is it safe to say that most boys love cars.. ok, then check this out!

now your boy can take his cars with him wherever he goes!

simple to make and made it during nap time :)

rolled up with elastic
cut piece for back : 8.5" x 16.5"
cut piece for "garage" slots: 4.5" x 16.5"
cut piece for street: 8.5" x 16.5"
bias tape
1/4"-1/2" elastic
yellow felt

sew on your pieces of yellow felt strips; I made 6 whatever size you want and measure them evenly across the middle of the top part, which will be your street:)
account for 1/4"-1/2" seam on each side.

I did a zig zag stitch around each small rectangle

sew on your bias tape to the top of the "checkered" fabric

sew the "checkered" fabric to the black fabric, under the yellow strips.
make each slot 2" apart (you will be able to fit 8 cars)

now sew the two large pieces together; right sides together along 3 edges; leaving the small side edge open. Reverse the fabric right side out.
tuck in the raw edges and sew the final edge with your elastic folded in half (measure by wrapping around so you have a nice snug when you close it up). Then, sew along the entire circumfrence.

slide in some cars and you are done!

Dre, you are just so incredibly talented. I so wish that you lived here and that I could learn from you! Maybe I need to plan a trip there where we could do different crafts the whole time! :)
