Y’all remember my grandson Easton (you can read all about him and the rough beginning he had HERE)—he’ll soon be 2 years old!!!! I can’t believe it~~ can you?!
Yep! this is him sharing his corn chips with the chickens… “Snack Time”
Since he has a birthday coming up. I thought I'd make him something from Oma's stash.
I made him this reversible draw string bag-- You never know what a 2 year old boy might need to carry around!
It's Camo- flavored!
I also made some bean bags ---for tossing around!
...And it closes up good and tight to keep his treasures safe!
I'll probably put some bubbles inside or a truck and some farm animals!
It isn't very big-- but I'm sure he'll fill it with something-- dirt, rocks, sticks...a frog!
Anyway-- I'm just learning how to do all this junk on my sewing machine. I've never known until THIS WEEK how to make a reversible ANY.THING!
But I watch Mel she makes all sorts of bags-- I thought this one was easy enough. I just used pant legs one from denim and one from camouflaged pants. Measured the hole... What I did was I found a jar big enough to fit in the hole and I trace around it with chalk...that is the extent of my measuring...;)
I sewed into the pant leg!
For the reversible part... I "Youtubed" it!
Don't you just love the internet and the learning tool it can be for you? I've learned so much on the web! We are career learners. My main goal in home schooling my kids was to make life-time learners out of them. They are all self learners and avid researchers...if they don't know how to do something, they find out how! I must take after my kids! ;) After home schooling my them mainly WITHOUT the internet-- I've kept up learning myself, now that they are all grown. I like to tell people,
"I've graduated from
The You-niversity of TUBE, with a GOOGLE ENHANCED DEGREE from The School of Hard Knocks-- All by the Grace of God!"
The Grace of the LORD Jesus be with your spirit. Phil. 4:23
