If you read my blog around Christmas time, you may remember my goal to have an Upcycled Christmas. One thing that I made, but never posted pictures of, was a playmat for my boys. Since both of them love cars, this playmat has turned out to be a winner in our house!
The large gray material is a grey flannel sheet I found on a past thrifting adventure. The rest of the mat is made from mostly upcycled T-Shirts. I had originally thought I would sew everything on, but time got away from me, and I ended up using fabric glue. If I could go back, I would sew it all on. I found out that not all fabric glues are alike.
I backed it with some fabulous IKEA car fabric that I’ve had since last summer. I really love that I didn’t have to purchase anything for this project! I just serged around the edges to put it all together.
