Car Cozie

Seems like everyone in the crafty world has made one of these... and I don't blame them. This is such a neat idea and super easy to put together. I used Jill's tutorial for inspiration, but had to change a couple of things due to supply issues. I made this for my friend's son who turned 2 this weekend. He is obsessed with cars and I really hope he loved it. I will definitely make more of these!



Here it is opened, with the cars neatly put away:



Love the purple road with the yellow dashes!



The road in action!



This is what it looks like all folded up, with no cars inside:

Oh this is awesome! My boys would have loved it! I wish we'd had one when they were little. You even have a "highway" for them to drive on! Thanks for linking up today.

Although I wish I would have seen this years ago when my sons still played with cars, I am thankful to have a grandson to craft for. Thanks for the inpsiration!
