Sew and Tell


I made some easy bean bags this week. The purpose? Kid gifts. And don't you love the fabric? It's so bright and cheerful. I am thinking of using it to make quilts for the bunk beds in Patch's and Mini-me's room.
My sewing time has suffered with the Olympics. Anyone else in the same boat?

May I order a set for my Primary class? I could do some pretty fun things with them -- NOT including pitching one square to the forehead of the little girls who like to chat :) My knitting is thriving during the Oly's.

Cute bean bags! I find I get through my needlepoint projects faster when I'm watching TV - I do alot during the commercials...With needlepoint, though, I'm not anchored to a sewing machine. Yeah Needlepoint?
Happy Stitchin'...

What a fabulous gift idea! My kids love playing with beanbags, but they certainly aren't cute like those ones.

Kids love those things. At school they throw them at anything moving. lolol I stand still when they pick up a handful.
The Olympics are great, I've spent alot of time sitting in front of the tv too. Your not alone.
