Go BIG or Go Home

Between purses, I've been able to squeeze in a couple projects here and there. In a book that I just got for Christmas (discussed in a future post), it has ample games and activities sure to keep a toddler learning, busy and happy. One of said games is a bean bag toss... So bean bags are the EASIEST thing to make in the world!!! Take a rectangular cut of fabric, sew up both sides, turn it right side out and stuff it, then sew it up! So I had to make it a little more challenging and got to use my new fetish- the wonder under. So I spelled out Riley's name with each letter on a bean bag. Well, my first attempt (Riley's name) was kinda lame and I learned a valuable lesson when it comes to applique letters. Size does matter! So my second attempt went much better and even better, I get to hand deliver them this week!!! Sorry I forgot to take pictures of Riley's- but seriously, they are very unimpressive and you hardly even notice the letters.
