I made this bag for my son who LOVES his cars. He is always trying to carry 5 or 6 of his most favorite cars around, and I spend a lot of time waiting for him to pick up all the cars he's dropped before we can go anywhere. I finally decided he needed a purse- so this was my solution. There are a bunch of tutorials online for bags like this. I used this one, but I wouldn't recommend it... it was a little confusing, I ended up modifying it in the end (to add the strap), and I didn't realize that there would be exposed seams inside. I didn't read very well before I started cutting up fabric. I like the way it turned out anyway- and it is just the right size for Lightning McQueen and his friends.

I am packing up Christmas decor today, so i thought I'd throw these on the blog before I shut the door on Christmas. I made these stockings several years ago, but finally just finished them this year. I added linings (so the felt wouldn't stretch out) and ribbon at the top to finish them off. I used a double faced satin ribbon on 3 of them which turned out to be pretty bulky. The single faced satin worked much better.
