Large Felt Car Playmat

 last year for Christmas my sister made my son a playmat very similar to A Girl and a Glue Guns mat. He LOVED it and pretty much wore it out over the last year. I decided that for Christmas I would update the idea and try to make it personal to where we live and put all his favorite places on it.

 Some of our favorite places:

  • the airport
  • IKEA
  • grocery store
  • favorite park
  • friends homes
  • our apartment building
  • the mountains behind out place
  • fruit stand
  • favorite restaurants
  • Dad’s School
  • train station
 it also has a gas station with a hose to fill up the cars.
 Airport terminal with plane parking

 and LOTS of car parking spots… he loves to park the cars.
 
I had SO much fun making and creating this… although trying to sew something this large wasn’t easy. Especially when I had it all pinned on and was trying to sew without sticking myself! I know we will get a lot of play and fun from this for years to come! I’ve also made a glue gun travel size version… HERE
