Last December I was a "blogging fool"....
This December, I have a fleeting thought about a post and then promptly dismiss it.
Meanwhile, we have been busy with Important Things...
Take this sleeping bag for Bear, for instance.
One of the blogs I follow, the Sewing Dork, did a post on softie sleeping bags. You can see hers here; I showed it to Strapping Young Lad to see if he had any interest in making one... he, of course, did, and I was fortunate enough to have some funky monkey scraps in my stash to appease his requests.
This was fast and easy to make; and Strapping Young Lad did much of the sewing. A good project to start him out on...
He was not pleased that the "right" sides of the fabric face "in" while sewing. He was convinced I was ruining his Bear-Bag. I explained about sewing so that the ugly seams are inside with the "wrong" side of the fabric...finally, in exasperation I told him, "You're just going to have to trust me."
He was relieved when the it all turned out "just right." :)
