I guess one of my resolutions
could should also be
"Write shorter blog posts"
Starting now! ;-)
Last one of the Christmas presents I have made -
Well, or bean bags, rice bags, and dried pea bags. :-)
I have been thinking about this idea since little man was born - so now more than one year!!! Took me forever to come up with a good idea. Yet, it is SO simple!
I have to admit something though. I actually did not make these. Hubby did. All that I did was make the pattern and sew on the applique bits. I was so keen to try some free motion embroidery. Is that even what it is called?
It is certainly nowhere near good enough to start free motion quilting or anything. But I suppose it could be worse. ;-)
I am planning to make more, take pictures and put up a tutorial on how to make them as I only have found two tutorials on how to make bean bags with removeable covers:
They are both great tutorials. I just was
too lazy not keen on sewing velcro or button holes. :-)
So I came up with an option that uses NEITHER! :-)
Will show you
soon most likely after Valentine ...
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you!
Making bean bags is an awesome RECYCLING project. You can use pretty much anything made out of fabric for them. ;-)
