I made it HUGE…..the felt is 2 yards wide at joanns….so I got 2 yards to make it an even square. I folded it up and took some string and a sharpie and made a perfect circle
(It cost me $6 for all the green (it’s 30% off!) so really cheap and easy!)
I hate legos. like i have none in my house cause they are so small and hurt so bad when you step on them. (this is for my nephew)
so I decided to make this mat with a twist….you can gather up the the strings to make it into a bag.
so you can throw all your legos into the mat..play with them….and then gather it up and keep them all there until next time.
I took a LONG rope and hot glued the edge all around the circle leaving the rope inside (but make sure it doesn’t get hot glued so it can be pulled to gather)
when I got about halfway done..i hot glue the rope….so you can’t pull it out accidently. you have to pull the sides evenly.
now…after I had it all done and gathered….i realized my mat was so stinking big…it wasn’t going to gather into a nice small bag….
it will still hold your legos inside…..but it still has an opening at the top..
reminds me of santa’s bag…..but green.
I googled lego man…and got some pictures to mimic my guy after…
my plan was to buy one of these lego boards and velcro it to the middle..
so i just hot glued the guy in the middle
and if you have a few minutes…google lego…it’s AMAZING!
