A Family Affair

Posted on

As soon as I can get my hands on a box (tomorrow, hopefully), these two sacks of bean bags will be winging their way to LOEP (Craft Hope’s current project recipients.)

Originally, I committed to making one set. Then I teamed up with Mom, who was (in her words) “feeling ambitious”, so she made two. That’s right: I make the commitment, she produces. It works for us!

In the interest of full disclosure, because she’ll protest otherwise, I’ll tell you that I made the drawstring bags. And cut the denim for one of the sets, which thrilled me to no end, seeing as how I was able to burn through several pair of jeans in the process — woohoo! (The denim? Mom’s idea. Good one, Ma!)Then she did … the rest.  See? I wasn’t exaggerating by much.

Can’t wait to find out what the next project is going to be so that “we” can get to work!

  2. Ooo, great way to use up denim. I dare those kids to make a hole in those bags – not gonna happen! Good job Mrs. P (and Meg).
