Fickle is my middle name. Actually it’s Lynn, but I think if my parents would have known how I'd turn out, they would have made it Fickle. Or Dabble. I dabble all the time in many things. In the past year I have tried silk screening, being vegetarian, various sewing attempts, jewelry design, photo editing, swing dancing, began training for a half marathon, started the process of opening a shop, contemplated becoming a makeup artist, read up on becoming a Buddhist, and now started a blog. A few of those actually turned out pretty well. Others not so much. I'd like to think I am a little more zen now, though. My husbnd teases me all the time about my phases. I just think I have a really open mind...and maybe a little too much time on my hands.
Last night’s dabbling was to create coasters for our living room. I wanted something that was somewhat unique without looking like we're trying too hard. I tried the paper behind the class tile with zero success and had given up for a while. Then I found these super cute napkins. I love them, but I don’t love the price. So, I decided to print my own. These will be used to make the coasters.
I had some leftover practice runs and thought they were too cute to not use. So this was my new project--bean bags! I traced a tile around the number and on scrap fabric. I have lots of fabric. It’s kind of a problem.
I lined the numbers and sewed them into squares. Super easy. After filling them with beans, I sewed them up!
Next, I will need to make a little bag for them. Hopefully our little girl will have fun with them someday. We've had some fun tossing them around in the meantime.
