In case you weren't reading my blog waaaaaayyyy back in April (that's a long time in the internet world), I showed you my tutorial for making these fun car playmats.
At the time, I had so many people interested in them that I thought I'd make some more and put them in my Etsy shop. Well, much to my disappointment, they no longer make this fabric! :(
Fast forward to present day as I prepare for the holiday craft fair I am planning to sell at (Yikes!). I wanted to make more of these playmats so I scoured the internet in search of a fabric I could use.
And here's what I found...
I ordered this one, appropriately entitled "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" by Timeless Treasures from the Fabric Depot. It's on sale for $7 a yard! I haven't received this one yet but I'm really excited about it. I think it's the closest to the original fabric that I used.
I also found this cute fabric at Hayloft Fabrics on sale for just $7.59 a yard. It's also by Timeless Treasures and it's called "Cars/Trucks on Green".
I was a little worried that this fabric wouldn't be "fun" enough since it's just roads (no buildings, etc...) but I am happy to report that my son gave it a test drive last night and is now requesting a car playmat out of this fabric!
And finally, I found this "Airport" fabric also by Timeless Treasures, also at Hayloft Fabric, also for $7.59 a yard.
My son has a lot of planes but they don't really make anything for kids to play with their planes on. I thought an airplane playmat would be perfect! And this fabric is super cute so of course I had to have it. :)
So that's what I've been up to. As you can see, my computer is thankfully back in business thanks to my husband, $99 and the Norton anti-virus guy! My camera, unfortunately, is not back in business. I am hoping to rectify that situation very soon. Do you know how many impossibly cute pictures of my children I have missed out on since our camera died? It's killing me!
