tutorial for number bean bags via the brilliant Little Red Bus. It was spotted on Holly's cheerful blog Chez Beeper Bebe. There are just loads of great tutorials on her blog and she has a lovely shop too. Her Two Faced range is just adorable!
Anyway, I was determined to make some for Stanley at some point, so here they finally are.
Inspired by our workshop chats and sample making for Jennifer at The Make Lounge, I've thrown myself back into the world of machine embroidery and have been having lots of fun.
Some of the fabric clashes are a bit mad, mixing my prints with fabric scraps that I've had forever, but I just wanted to be a bit random and colourful for my little lad. I've stuffed them with wheat and lavender to give him a sensory kick too!
Holly gives all the beneficial and fun reasons for making these on her blog and I whole heartedly agree!
We played catch, what's missing, hide and seek, memory game, juggling and finally throwing them all straight at me. That's when it all got a bit out hand and we had to stop! Our living room is now filled with a lovely aroma of lavender and despite having a crap nights sleep last night, I felt I at least got something good done today.
So thanks to all those links to a great thing and more on The Make Lounge later!
Oh and I thought I'd add just one more link!
