felt mat GIRL STYLE.

Remember that  boy felt car mat I made  for my cute little nephew

(click HERE to take you to the boy mat tutorial.)

…and when I gave it to him at his party…my neice loved it! and played with it and played with it. So I knew that a girl one was needed…and since her birthday is next week…HERE it is:

The same basic construction as the boys
Start with some felt:

This is half of the yard. But I ended up trimming of about 8 inches from each side.
Then I take strips and hot glue them around the edges like binding
Then I just go for it. I add the garage and road on first and then start putting stuff around it.
Finished Product:
Comes with a castle. and an animal pen
a cottage (her house) and lots of flowers
a lake with mermaid and a fire station (her dad is a firefighter)
and apple tree with tire swing and her dog (ty)’s dog house
The “garage” is her intials and is just two big pockets to hold her stuff
Perfect for Littlest Pet shops
or princess stuff
or hot wheels
or polly pockets or little stuffed animals or my little ponies….man, why is everything little bitty?
I just included a littlest pet shop and a hot wheels car in her present.
and once again rolls up nice and small.
