Jill, at Homemade By Jill created an adorable car cozy. I don't think that she has posted it on her blog yet, but she has a bunch of other fun ideas there. I thought it would be a fun gift for my Lou. I hope that it might keep him entertained during church since he refuses to go to Sunday School.
It's mostly felt. The top green fabric is just a cotton. I used what I had on hand. I toyed around with adding some felt trees too, but the scale seemed so off. Not that giant safety cones make a lot of sense either.
I was able to do some of this on the sewing machine, but a good deal of it is by hand.
I had the hardest time with the binding. If I haven't said it before, I will say it now, I so dislike bias tape. Amy Karol, the author of Bend the Rules Sewing, (she also writes the blog, Angry Chicken) practically has an entire chapter on her love for bias tape. I don't get it.
This is part of his homemade Christmas.... and I'm hoping for at least 10 minutes of quiet play on Sunday morning.
