It is as the title says ... a bean bag!
Although I have to admit it has been a long time coming. I used the tutorial over at Project Nursery that promises you a bean bag in 30 minutes ..... and it actually does only take 30 minutes - it's wonderful. So why oh why has it been on my to do list for sooooo long?!
I know it's not a very inspiring picture but my daughter, who is soon to be 12, was still in her pyjamas and did not want to get dressed and be in a picture!
Initially I made both daughters one each out of calico because I wasn't sure if they would be big enough for them or that they would actually use them. My girls are 9 and 11 and tall and this pattern still works really well for them. The fabric choice took a fair while and quite a lot of negotiation! The fabric ends up sideways and so a very obvious directional print would look funny .... to me, apparently not to my daughter. So a compromise was reached because whilst this bird fabric is directional it does not scream at you that the birds are sideways.
So that is another finish from my 2016 FAL List - hooray. The link ups for finishes opens today and runs for a week so I'll be sure to link up all my Quarter 2 finishes over the weekend. x
