Car / Construction Floor Mat

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Once again this Great Idea was inspired by Vanessa Wilson at Crafty Gemini. While she made one for her little girl, I needed one for a little guy who loves construction vehicles. Even I can't believe how "life-like" the construction area turned out - (unfortunately it just doesn't show the true character in pictures.) I can't decide if I like that area or the stop signs at the end of each street :) And the little guy's mom loves the attached bag ~ it never gets lost and holds many construction trucks as well as the mat. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The ideas are limitless. Customize it to your "little person's" taste and have fun with it.

What you will need

  • Denim for the mat
  • various materials appliqued to make the scenes. The street was drawn with permanent marker. The back side consists of a map of the United States. There is no batting between the materials - just stitched at the road edges to hold the two layers together. At the end of the mat is an attached bag which holds the folded up mat and any vehicles needing to be transported to Grandma's house.
