Emmie and I got her wee friend Oliver to get a gift for and rather than buy him something I thought we would make him a wee road playmat so he could play with all his cars on it for years to come.
I made a similar play mat with a town theme a couple of years ago for my cousin’s wee boy and he absolutely loved his so I’m hoping that Oliver will have many years of fun playing with his one.
I did consider just doing the same mat again but I found lovely blue chevron fabric in our local fabric shop so instead decided to go for an emergency services theme. It definitely had to have a fire station, hospital and police station and I thought we could squeeze a wee helicopter pad in there too.
Here’s a pic of the finished playmat kindly sent to me by Oliver’s mummy with all his wee cars ready for playing on it, I think it turned out great and most importantly Oliver and his mummy loved it :)
