Tutorial Tuesday: Car Caddy

Have you seen the cute as a button matchbox car caddies floating around on the internet? Homemade by Jill has a great one. I used her measurements, but changed it up a bit to make it a little bit easier. I will include my directions here. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of the process, but I think that it will be pretty clear.
1. Cut two rectangles of fabric measuring 11 1/2" by 8 1/2". (I used one piece of corduroy and one piece of a cotton flannel car print.)
2. Cut one rectangle of fabric measuring 11 1/2" by 6". (In some of my caddies I used the corduroy for this step and in others I used the flannel.)
3. Press the 11 1/2" by 6" rectangle in half, wrong sides together, creating a 11 1/2" by 3" rectangle.
4. Place your pressed piece, pressed edge up, on the right side of a 11 1/2" by 8 1/2" corduroy rectangle. (Line up raw edges on the bottom and sides.)
5. Stitch through all three pieces of fabric in the middle of the set. Stitch two more rows 2 3/4" to the left and right of the middle. 

6. Cut 3" by 11" rectangle out of black felt for the road. Cut yellow gross grain ribbon into five 1" lengths for the center line of the road. (I adhered fusible web onto the ribbon before cutting it.) Sew the ribbon pieces down the middle of the felt.

7. Stitch road 1/2" from the top of the stitched set.

8. Place stitched set on top of remaining 11 1/2" by 8 1/2" rectangle, wrong sides together.
9. Serge around entire rectangle through all layers.
10. Cut two 12" lengths of 1" wide belting. Finish off the edges and sew on the top and bottom of the patterned piece for handles.
