    car cozy - boy gift

    I know this is not a quilt, but it was so much fun to make!
    Pattern - from "Simple Quilts & Sewing" magazine (Winter), p. 87
    Fabric from my stash - had to buy the grosgrain ribbon.

    (Changes to pattern: I sewed the road stripes down - pattern called for fusing only. The ribbon handle was to be tied - I sewed two loops -a long and short one - pull the long one through the short one and done. Added initials that will be appliqued on - right now they're just fused. I've already made a second one and appliqued those before final assembly. The road was supposed to be flannel, but I made with regular black cotton.)

    I think it is a perfect gift for a boy! Nice job, love the bright fabrics!

    My grandsons are 4 and 5 so I think they'll love these. I'd think it would go from 3 to almost 8? Depends on the boy, of course. Could be modified for any small toys - little animals with a playscape, etc. The way it folds the toys won't fall out.

    Bonitagaye - do I ever hear you. I simply do not know how these "babies" got to be 4 (don't say that! He's 4-and-a-half!) and 5 (and-a-half). I've been waiting for a new one, but ... no sign yet!

    I love it and it would be cool for a girl to just girly fabric and little dolls. Wonderful idea. I think I will make one for my grand son too. Thanks for sharing.

    This is so cute. I have two young grandsons that would just love these. I need to try to find the pattern.

    What a cute idea. I have seen the crayon rolls (same concept just hold crayons) but this is great for the boys. This would be great to sell at a craft show. Thanks for sharing.

    Great idea, my grandson is 8 and he is always stuffing his hot wheels into his pockets for the 30 mile trip to my house. Halfway to our home he complains the cars are poking him. What didn't I think of this? So much nicer than a ziplock bag or pockets.

    perfect for a little boy
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
