This project has been on my "to craft list" for a very long time. When my daughter showed an obsession for matchbox cars it gave me the nudge I needed to start working on her felt car mat.

My husband and I thought of all the places a town needed like a Tim Hortons Coffee shop and a Target..haha.  
I made a sketch on paper of how I wanted Ashtyn's town to look.
I used inkjet cotton sheets (from Michaels) to print off each business logo so Ashtyn could recognize each business.

This project was definitely a labour of love and it was sometimes tricky sewing the smaller pieces of felt. But all in all I'm happy with how it turned out and best of all Ashtyn is one happy customer.

TIP: if your pressed for time use a glue gun to affix your pieces onto your mat.
