One of Isabelle’s friends turned 3 this week so we headed to his party this morning. In typical 3-year-old boy fashion he loves cars and all the characters from the Cars movies. Instead of buying a toy I thought I would find some fun things to make for him. Making presents for my daughter’s friends won’t be cool forever so I might as well do it while I can.
I started out with making a pillowcase. Isabelle loves her “custom” pillowcases so I found Cars fabric and made him one.
I was excited to find the racing check fabric, it worked perfectly it. I can’t find the link to the tutorial I used, I didn’t pin it on Pinterest and now it’s not showing up.
I decided to add one more thing to the gift so I searched around Pinterest and found this.
It looked easy enough so I got all the materials and loved how it turned out!
Here is my version of the car caddy:
Since we live in a house with little girls he got a new Lightening McQueen out of the deal so I could make sure the cars actually fit. 🙂
Here is what it looks like with a parked car.
I was having a little photo shoot with this caddy, so here is what it looks like folded in half.
I like how the velcro part looks like a front window. This was also the first time I’ve made something with piping all the way around- I like the way it finishes the edges.
And finally, what it looks like all folded up and ready to go. I hadn’t added the final vecro piece when I took this picture, so it’s not strapped.
When we were at the party we tested it out with all 6 cars in the pockets and it still folded nicely!
This would be great for throwing in a purse to keep your son occupied while you are out and about, and it helps store all those little cars! So fun and a fun gift to make for a little boy.
