Love the idea of this design. Would like to see it edited a little to improve the positioning of the road markings to ensure they do match up in the centre of the roads when it is pieced together with other sections. Options for using a bigger hoop would be great.
All in all fab idea totally play worthy, just time consuming with all the trimming and re hooping. But I would stitch it out again!

Let me start by saying this design is absolutely adorable and stitches out very nicely, but I nearly threw my machine out of the window trying to make it! The directions aren't clear enough (for example it says cut the rectangle of green felt and start hoop 1 in the corner - it didn't say width or lengthwise, so on my first try all four hoopings didn't fit because I picked the wrong corner to start in). Doing multiple hoopings can be difficult and time consuming to get good results because I wanted to roads to match up perfectly. I also wish the "garage" pocket for the cars was longer since the cars poke out of there. In the end it made a really lovely item, it was just frustrating along the way.

Loved the race car track! Was fun to make. The little tyke that receives it for Christmas will love it!
