Thanks for the great comments on my spare room. I enjoyed reading them, as always!
Ok... now onto a bit of sewing! This is something I made for my nephew for his third birthday, which was a few days after Christmas. I was a terrible blogger and didn't take any photos at all!! So, my dear sister-in-law (thanks Roon!) took some on her phone and whatsapped them to me the other day... so excuse the phone pics, and the fact that it's a very tricky item to photograph!
A few years back, I made a beanbag cube for myself, which you can see here (in a post with pretty rubbish pictures, even with a proper camera - I hope my photography skills have improved at least in some way since then!)
From the time I made that last cube I'd had in the back of my mind to make one for my nephew, but he was only a tiny baby back then. These days, when he comes round to my house, he loves jumping on and rolling around with mine, so I thought he'd got to the age where he'd appreciate one of his own.
And he does seem to be enjoying it!
I bought thick cotton fabric - not sure what you'd call it, but it's thicker than normal weight cotton for quilting etc. Hopefully it'll withstand all the bouncing! (If not, Roon - let me know and I'll fix it somehow!)
It has a concealed zip on the bottom that looks rather neat, even if I say so myself, with the zip pull tucked away - but I'm afraid I have no pictures for you. The idea is that Theo won't notice it and start investigating the inside of the cube! I did buy beans that come in a kind of stocking bag, though, so if he does make his way inside hopefully it won't be too messy! He's never noticed the zip on my cube, so I think we should be ok.
Spot the Olaf peeping over!
So, a bit late - but the beanbag cube gets it's time on the blog! You can see my other sewing projects on my Sewing tab.
