Like most young boys, LM loves playing with his cars. After being so excited about pants pockets that were deep enough to put cars in, I knew I needed to make him a car mat that he could put his cars in.
You can find a dozen different versions of this around the internet… but this is my version. It has a flap that covers the cars, making it easier to roll up without them falling out, and the “car pockets” are only half as deep as a standard matchbox car, making it easier to put the cars in, and take them out. It is so funny, LM always insists on putting them in facing the same direction! He is so particular about stuff like that! : )
Today’s sponsor, to go along with the car theme, is JDLady. She has a fantastic etsy shop, with all kinds of stuff… but I fell in love with her little wooden pocket cars! Today’s winner (chosen from among my followers) will get a car sent to them! You also have a second chance to win – on Sunday we will be picking another winner from those that posted their pocket projects to the pocket linky.
On to our project!

I wish my little boys were into cars so I could make this for them! Maybe a nephew! I’d love it if you’d stop by my Topsy Turvy Tuesday Link party and add this adorable project!
