What did you do with your extra hour?
This morning, courtesy of the end of daylight savings time, we were up at 5:30 A.M. Before church, my super duper husband took our two-year old on a hike at 8:30 am. The baby fell alseep for a little nap and I found myself with an hour on my hands.
So I made this.
I started with my abundance of felt.
I chopped up a few pieces. I have a big scrap of blue felt from a bolt (not the little squares) so I cut two 10” x 18” pieces for the base and back. I cut a 4” x 12” piece of gray to hold the cars and a smaller brown piece for the road. I used yellow scraps for the yellow line.
I started by sewing the yellow pieces onto the brown road. Then I sewed the road onto the blue base.
For the gray, I sewed just the vertical lines (I did mine at 3” increments). The horizontal bottom will be completed when sewing on the back blue piece.
To make a connection piece, I used an elastic hair tie sandwiched between the base fabric and the back fabric.
Next, sew the back fabric onto the base.
I added a button to keep the whole thing closed.
I let our little guy take it to church. He liked putting the cars into the pockets. It kept him occupied for a good portion of the service!
