I decided to make these cool little toy car carriers for a birthday gift, as well as for my son. They came out so cute. I initially looked around the interwebz for inspiration and found these two ideas:

- Interior Fabric: 9.75" x 18"
- Exterior Fabric: 9.75" x 18"
- Stabilizer: 9.75" x 18"
- Fabric for the pockets: 7"x10", 5.5" x 10"
- Optional: Embroidery machine or a Cricut/Silhouette if you want to add the name
- Snaps or buttons
TutorialWash and iron fabric.
Cut out your fabric.
Hem the top (inside) edge of both pockets.
Add the matching Velcro or snap to the inner fabric, making sure you put it in the correct spot so they match up. Reinforce your snaps with a small additional piece of fabric- otherwise the snaps may rip through a single layer of fabric.
Put pockets right side up onto the inner pocket, pin, and sew them together on the sides.
Embroider name in middle section.
Turn fabric right sides out, carefully. Iron.
Fold your carrier in thirds with the car side being the furthest inside. Add snaps to close the case once you fold it into thirds. You want your snap to go through two layers (the layer you need your snap to be on and your stabilizer). Here I am marking where I want my snaps.
