Grandson's Nesting Boxes Finished

This is the middle of three nesting boxes for my five year old grandson. The challenge to myself was how to make these masculine and okay for a kid no longer a little guy...he loves baseball so this flannel fabric seemed okay for the outside of this box. His Valentine is tucked into a side pocket. Here you see all three boxes opened up all the way making (I hope) a good raceway for his hot wheel cars...it's a mixture of Nascar raceway cars and motorcycles. In the middle or bottom of the baseball box outer side is a baseball diamond with a game in progress.
Here you see all three boxes one inside the other
and here they are side by side
The outer theme of the smallest box is fishing and ships!
Well, Grandma Lynnie had fun making them
we'll see come Valentine's Day how they
went over with the Kindergarten set.
