The Spirit of Christmas

Twenty years ago I made a Village Play Mat like this for Bryce as a Christmas gift. I remember I worked at night for weeks cutting the pieces and ironing them onto the background. It was so hard at the time to find anything to make for little boys and I really enjoyed putting it together. Bryce enjoyed it as much as I did, he played with it for years. I'm not sure where it is now, I think we gave it away. This Christmas I am making one for Micah. I'm using the same pattern ( The Spirit of Christmas Book 5) but I think the fabric will be a little more exciting. Again I am looking forward to making this project. I'll post pictures of my progress.
