Today we celebrated my nephew Tom’s fourth birthday!
We had some apple pie…. (30 second after I took this picture, there was nothing left!)
And unwrapped a lot of gifts!
I made Tom a set of bean bags (actually filled with rice instead of beans) and a nice quilted drawstring bag to put them in.
I did not use any tutorials for the bag, just “winged it”. That is why I am not showing you the inside, ha ha! I forgot to hide the seams there, so it is a big mess! But HEH, Tom is 4, he does not mind!
I used a very nice piece of quilting cotton from Dear Stella that I ordered from my favorite online quiltstore: Bic’s Business. I decided on a “nautical theme” for Tom.
I added some thicker uphostery fabric (curtains maybe?) from IKEA.
I found two cool carpets at IKEA too! Have a look at these! (No I did not buy them, although I was tempted!)
For the hexie-lovers…
..and the button lovers!
Okay , I am off to go and do some online shopping at the quilt shop I mentioned above! They are carrying more and more modern fabric! YAY!!!
