What do you do when you want to put on a happy face or at least block out the noise of children annoying each other by focusing on something else for awhile? You make stuff.
How do you do that when you can only use what you've got in the closet? Bust out the sewing machine, which should give you some insight to the depth of my snow bound madness.
Today's project used inspiration from my lovely blogging buddy Laurel over at Ducks In A Row
and a plethora (would you say I have a plethora?) of felt. Which in this case means about 3.5 pieces.
But since I'm not a sewer, I had to dumb it down. Words like "embroider" and "applique" and "fold" scare me. As do specific directions, so I just laid it all out. And I could only find two cars, so guess how many spaces I made?
Because I can never do a project without tweaking it, instead of a straight road I went hog wild and did a little race track. I cut it out of paper first, then used that as a pattern on the felt. The paper turned out to be some kind of important scorecard for the boys, so word to your mother: ask first before cutting.
Sewed it all down, and then to cover up the back
leave a comment and I'll randomly draw a name and send this race car roll-up (catchy!) right to your doorstep.
If I can ever get out of mine.
P.S I guess I should have a cut-off? Um......Sunday at 8pm. Sounds good to me.
