Cars-To-Go Carrier

After making the crayon roll, I realized that I needed something similar to it for my Cars-lovin' son. I searched and searched the internet for a tutorial, typing in a thousand different things. I only found one. I liked it, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. I wanted something that folded up small, had Velcro for easy opening, and didn't require me to buy any extra materials than the ones I had on had and had already bought for it.

So, I ended up making up my own pattern.

Because I didn't want to be chasing down too many cars in church or at the restaurant {or wherever he might be playing with it}, I only added slots for three cars.

It measures about 15 inches squared and closes up to 5 x 7.5 inches.

However, after I finished making it, I've found all sorts of fun tutorials for them, including one on So You Think You're Crafty? and this amazing one on the Fiskars website. Now I want to make another when I'm not in the middle of finishing up Christmas presents so that I can get a little more creative with it.

Let me know if you make one of them!
