Sooo.. Of course I had to make some fun car things to celebrate his birthday. I ordered a race track panel with matching fabric to make a quilt that he can sleep under and play with.
The panel is just the middle part. I pieced the borders with the matching fabrics. It now looks like a bigger panel, but it’s not. The backing is a super soft yellow flannel.
I can’t wait to watch him play with his cars on it and then snuggle up with it to sleep:)
I used the Moda Lissa tutorial on how to make travel pillow cases. While the pillowcase really was very easy to make, I found the tutorial itself quite confusing. If I ever make another of these (which I am sure I will), I think I will try to make a tutorial on her tutorial. Lol!
I love how the embroidery just pops out on the band. I sure wish it was easier to match up those letters though…Oh, well. I got them all in and fairly straight too. Yea:)!
I quilted the fabric before I sewed it all together to give it a little bit of strength and sturdiness. I added the cute bands as well. Hey, when you have such cute fabric scraps, you need to use them!
I used a large plastic toothed zipper that is easy to zip open and closed.
