DIY Felt Car Mat You Can Customize

(No-Sew Option Included)

Car play mats can be expensive, and they are usually small and generic. Make your own DIY no-sew car play mat out of felt with these cute ideas.

You could totally make this DIY no-sew felt car play mat without any sewing at all (using a hot glue gun or fabric glue).

First thing I did was make a list of all of the different things I wanted on our DIY no-sew felt car play mat. I asked my kids what they liked to do as well.

Design your DIY no-sew felt car play mat

I purchased four large 3×3′ squares of dark green felt from Michael’s to use as the base. I also purchased  multi-colored packs of felt as well as some extra individual sheets of green and red.

Lay out all four squares in a large 2×2 grid. You’ll eventually sew/glue these all together, so make sure to leave about 3 inches of space on each square where it touches another square.

Set Up & Sew/Glue the Layout

Lay out each building and side road (the ribbon) where you want them to be. Pin them into place. You are going to want to use a lot of pins because you will be moving around a lot as you sew/glue.

Sew/glue on each piece and the side roads. I also sewed three sides of a full sheet of felt onto one corner so that there is a “pocket” of sorts to hold the cars. You can add a zipper if you want.

Put two of the large squares together, and sew/glue the side that you want them attached. Now pin down the main road along one of the seams and sew it down. To finish up, sew/glue a seam around the edges.
