There's No Time Like the Last Minute

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.

Thanks so much Betsy. I'm hoping it can at least support my newly out of control sewing habit.

you, my dear, are turning into an "evil genius" of a crafter!
