Felt is so amazing. I’ve been a little obsessed with sewing with felt. No need for hems, no stray threads. The felted travel road mat is wonderful for taking along on trips, quiet playtime at home, and perhaps even airline travel!
I used embroidery thread to hand stitch the road lines and the three-dimensional pieces. The mountains are simply a circle with a pac-man shape cut out and then folded into a cone and stitched.
Two felt pieces are hand sewn together for the green mat. I used a sewing machine to place one large storage pocket and a three-car storage pocket on the back of the mat. When everything is tucked away, the mat folds in half, then in half again. A simple felt piece with velcro keeps in all in place.
