Last Christmas, I made this road playmat for my nephew. He loves his matchbox cars, and this mat was perfect!
I got the printed panel from Fat Quarter Shop and some green duck canvas from Joann’s for the backing. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to have the same fabric now that I had, though they have a few more panels that look fun. There is also this panel at Bug Fabric that looks like fun. I google image searched “transportation fabric” and “road play mat fabric” and found several good options.
All it takes is to sew the two pieces together! I sewed them with the fronts facing each other, and leaving a little open space for turning. Then I flipped it right side out and sewed all the way around the outside. Finally, I sewed along several of the roads to keep it together.
Isn’t it great? A perfect Christmas present!
