Toy Car Letter Wall Art

Riley Blake Car Fabric

Riley Blake Car Fabric

I was totally inspired to create this letter monogram wall art with the toy cars for the kid’s room.

 

There are many tutorials on Pinterest sticking the toy cars permanently onto the letter that the idea would make my boy screaming out all night.

 

Luckily, the magnetic paint leftover from last year solves the problem perfectly for painting the road letter, so the cars can be moved all over the road and changed the cars anytime.

How cool it is to own a Lego sewing machine even if you don’t sew at all!


I just came across the original Lego sewing machine tutorial on suchitysuch.blogspot.ca, but the little machine already turns into hundreds of  “brands” and more “features” like computer keypads, feed dogs, threading space.


So only a motor is missing…
