Pin-It Up Thursday...Toy Mat/Bag

 When I saw this on Pinterest I knew that it was a project I had to do.  Anyone else almost curse when you stepped on the sharpest smallest toy your child has?  We just got our first lego set, so we don't have enough to merit sewing a mat-but polly pockets and every little tiny winy thing they come with are all over my house.  So something had to be done.


Using what I had on hand I made mine out of upholstery fabric. You may recognize the fabric from this project.
Here it is all cinched up.  I didn't have any elastic cording so I used 10 grommets around the edges and a pink ribbon.
I was surprised how much we could fit into the bag.  Even the houses fit.  My little girl loved the idea that cleaning up would only take seconds.
I will need to find the elastic cording so I won't have yards of ribbon hanging out when it is cinched up.  As soon as I finished it my little boy asked where his blue one was...I guess I will have to make a run to the fabric store.
