So this creation was concocted as a last-minute, night before, second birthday gift for my step niece. It wasn't so much that I had put off buying or making something on purpose- I had been thinking about it for a couple weeks- it's just that I couldn't decide on what to buy or make. This is what I came up with the night before. It's a combination Play-Doh Mat/Bag, complete with easy-to-clean vinyl coating on one side for mess-free Play-Doh fun and velcro strips on the other side that make it possible to fold into a tote bag to conveniently carry Play-Doh and Play-Doh accessories. As far as I know, this is a completely original idea. I'm hoping to refine it just a bit and put it up for sale in my etsy store. I was also thinking I could include a lump of homemade play-doh (secret family recipe) with every purchase.
