I fell in love with the car cozi that Jill from homemade by jill made for So You Think You're Crafty challenge. I knew I had to make one for my 2 year old nephew. Between Jills tutorial and the tutorial from My Little Gems I was able to make my own version.
I did a few things differently then the tutorials. First, I used a really heavy interfacing that made the road part of the cozi really stiff so it could hold itself up if there isn't a hard surface to put it on. Second, I decided to make my road windy instead of straight. I thought that just a straight road might get boring sooner. I used No Sew Heat-n-Bond to attach the road lines, number and car decorations on the backing.
I had some leftover car fabric from the curtains that I made for my son's room that I cut up and appliquéd to the back of the cozi. I put the cars just on the top portion so when the cozi is rolled up that is the part that shows.
I was able to make the entire thing from scraps that I had in my stash. I love being able to use up my stash!
