I made this car storage and road mat for my nephew for Christmas.  I have seen several online before and really wanted to make one for my nephew so I made this one of my own design, I used sewing, applique and fabric painting as well as the plug in end of the ear phone things for the fuel pump. 

In progress still painting:




Completed now  Grin :




Here are some of the details up close...the long velcro pocket to allow for maximum storage and ease...and some of the details of the buildings too




The details on the road works section, with rocks and gravel piles and road cones.


The details on some more of the buildings including the fuel pump, pak n save supermarket and garage.


The house and trees and tiny machine sewn flowers with painted details.


All rolled up and folded over.


Anyway, that is my creation, what do you think?

Thank you Antidigger and Trouble T!  

The stone fabric was from the specialty quilters store in Upper Hutt called Thimbles and Things.
