Homemade Gift: Car Rolls

This is one of those ingenius ideas I've run across, thanks to some link parties. There are all kinds of tutorials out there for these car rolls, but I originally found this idea at Sewing and Growing. She has several other links at her post, so you can check them out for variations on this idea.

I looked at all of the ideas and then came up with my own, based on what was easiest for me. It's basically a rectangle, with the bottom sewn up to create the pockets. I added fleece (you could also use batting) to make mine a little more sturdy.

I was able to get seven of them out of the vehicle sheet I picked up at my favorite thrift store a few weeks ago. See? I do actually use those sheets! :)

I gave one to my son, and I'm saving the rest for birthday gifts and "just because" gifts for visiting missionaries' kids. I figure this would be an excellent gift to keep little boys busy on a long deputational tour.
