Have you looked around Go To Patterns yet? It's exactly the kind of place sewists like us enjoy browsing. It's all your favorite independent pattern makers at your disposable in one marketplace. And there is something for everyone- kid patterns, women's clothing, toys, bags, and even quilts.
It's all the brainchild of the very talented Andrea, and I was so pleased she asked me to be a part of the Christmas tour de go-to.
I got to make the Billy Car Play Mat and Roll-up by Handmade Therapy. This is a great pattern for a beginner who wants to make some adorable kid gifts this season, or an advanced sewer who wants to crank out a quick project. Either way, the payoff is great if you know a little car enthusiast.
It's a mat with fun roads, but it also holds up to 8 cars securely. And it's only about 17" x 11" so it's a great travel toy and easy to slide into your purse or diaper bag.
It only takes about a fat quarter of fabric plus a few other supplies that you probably already have. I used a Michael Miller Vehicles print on the inside and a number print from Reunion from Moda on the outside. The pocket panels are scraps of a canvas from Ikea.
Make sure to check out more amazing versions of the versatile patterns in the Go To shop by these talents on the tour, and enter the rafflecoptor below to win some wonderful fabric and pattern prizes.
