Car wallet, a little boy birthday gift

It has been a while since I made a car wallet, but today we're attending a little boys second birthday party. Happy birthday Gijs!
So what is a better present than toy cars? Yes toy cars you can easily take with you on outings!

Our car wallet has a permanent home in my purse and it's just the perfect entertainment for those moments the rascals get a little bored.  Instant fun and it just takes up a small amount of space. (Although space isn't really an issue, my purse is bigger on the inside. Ahum, excuse my geekery, I'm a sucker for dr. Who)

I used a flannel with a fun vehicle print for the pockets and a blue woven (sort of canvas) for the wallet. The wallet closes with velcro and I added two cars on the front with flock foil.

homemade gift? I'm always in for some new ideas!


  1. Was mijn stoffen kast maar bigger on the inside :D

  2. Geweldig! Mijn zoon zou dit fantastisch vinden. Wil je misschien de afmetingen van de etui en van de lap flanel willen verklappen? 😁 dan ga ik het ook proberen.

    1. Hoi Martine, ik ben helaas vergeten de precieze afmetingen op te schrijven. Ik was eigenlijk al doende de maten aan het bijstellen. Maar bij benadering zal de stof van de etui ongeveer zo'n 30 cm x 27,5 cm zijn geweest (2x knippen) en die van het flanel 20 cm x 48 cm. Dit is inclusief 1 cm naadwaarde. Er zijn ook wel goede tutorials zoals deze : Die heeft wel iets ruimere afmetingen.

  3. The leather handles of the louis vuitton tote neverfull are a tactile delight, crafted with supple and durable leather that not only elevates the overall aesthetic but also ensures longevity and comfort in every use. Whether you choose to carry it gracefully by hand or sling it over your shoulder, the handles adapt to your preferences with ease.
