Football Play Pad for a Football Fan

Robby's birthday was on Friday & his mom, Esther, threw the coolest BYU party (see last years BYU party here) complete with another Cosmo appearance! (You can even see, over Rob's shoulder, that she used the photoshopped Robby football players I made for his Christmas underware as decoration. So cute!)


Since he's such a football fan I wanted to make him a special gift this year. Finally, I decided to design & make him a football field mat with little football guys to play with.

The football guys were Wilton cake toppers & the goal posts with the flat football were a random buy from the Easter basket section of WalMart.

I made a little velcro pouch for the guys to be held in.

Then it wraps up nicely with a tie.

Syd & Rob LOVED playing with it & it ended up being a BIG hit at the party (big kids & little kids alike). It was a lot of work but worth seeing how much Robby loved it! Win!

Not just cute, this thing is freakin awesome. Seriously. You continue to out do yourself EVERY TIME. And I officially withdraw any attempt to ever compete with you on a creative level. :)
