Its amazing how doing something you really love can improve your whole mood. I woke up this morning in such a funk... even tears which is quite unusual for me... But after we did the groceries and I spent a bit of time with Bubba I got her settled in front of a movie she chose at the library (yep, tv babysitting here) I got stuck into some sewing, and felt the blues melt away.
Our kids are Beanie Kid crazy. Between them they have about 30.. and as such they are taking over their bedrooms and the house. They get them for birthdays, good school reports, blood tests, you name it! I love all the different ones and they are very cute but I needed to tame them into some sort of organisation.
These are Bubba's ones....
I have been thinking about how to keep them tidy for a while and this is what I came up with
It ties onto the end of Bubba's bed and has 12 pockets.
Would you just do ANYTHING for that gorgeous face!!!
I used up some curtain fabric a friend gave me years ago which has been sitting in my fabric stash waiting for the perfect use. It was the perfect weight as its sturdy enough to hold its shape with the beanie kids in it.
Bubba was really excited and had to pull out all the beanie kids and put them back in her way :)
Of course when Sonic and Little Miss Sunshine came home from school they couldnt wait for me to make them one!
So far I have made one for Sonic and Little Miss Sunshine's I will do on the weekend..
I am so proud of myself for using fabric I already had. Watch this space because next month I am going to attempt to have a 'No spend' month and finish all those WIPs I have!
This is my first time at playing along with My creative space at Kootoyoo.
