It's not easy to make a lot of roads with such a small mat so a figure eight shape seemed best.
I had this fabric with colourful hills and houses and thought it might be nice to cut around the shapes in the fabric rather than cut straight lines across it. Then I just stitched around the shapes.
To keep it all together I made a drawstring bag in similar colours - roughly A4 size including a 1cm seam allowance and enough for the fold to encase the drawstring.
The bag holds the mat, a little car and helicopter and three pocket sized dinosaurs.
I think we should lunch out again soon just to test it!
