Getting Crafty- Car Caddy

Well the other day I was promising you that I would make an effort to be more crafty. I love to craft, but it is just hard to get started because I never know what to do. Anyways I saw this on pintrest and decided that this would be a good place to start.

Andrew is out of town for the weekend and I am home watching Luke, so since I am here alone with no adult contact I decided to get busy with something to make the time go by faster. (Don't get me wrong, I love to watch Luke and wouldn't have it any other way, but it can just drive you a little crazy only having an 19 month old to talk to, so having something to do helps) So I went to Hobby Lobby and got supplies and then spent today working on it.

This is one of my first sewing projects, so it is still a little ghetto....but it is finished and better than I thought it would turn out. Luke is going to put it to the test tomorrow morning at church. I am always looking for neat (quiet) things for Luke to do at church. He isn't too into sitting still and listening, so a quiet activity is a must.

Cutting out the fabric:

 Added car pockets and the road. My black felt was to short so I had to put 2 pieces together, so I made a crosswalk to cover the line where the 2 pieces met.

Orange car for the outside:

I used Velcro to hold the caddy together when folded up. 

I haven't added the numbers on the car part (like in the tutorial), maybe I'll get energy to do it tomorrow....

This was a fun little adventure, hopefully Luke will love and it spend time playing with it. It isn't perfect, and sorta looks like a 1st grader made it, but it's made with love. That's what counts, right?!?

Maybe I'll try a quiet book next?!
