So I'm totally addicted to making these peek-a-boo bags! Toni has a great tutorial over on her blog if you want to make a little bag to store all those Mr Potatohead pieces or the Duplo blocks or your Barbie and her gear (I'm going to be making another stack of these for my kids - but not before Christmas)!
Here's one for a friends little boy (old mattress cover for the lining and "Truck Stop" for the outer).
One for D who is going to be a train driver (if he's unable to find work as a cowboy). Again, an old mattress cover for the lining and the outer has concentric trains on it!
I love how great this project is for using all those odd bits of fabric you buy but have no plans for. I also love how great the retro sheeting looks as lining but have been chuckling to myself that I'm cutting up perfectly good pillowcases to make something that is essentially a lined pillowcase with a window on it!
Merry Christmas to anyone who's read this far! I hope that you get all your making done at a reasonable hour, manage a good few hours of sleep and enjoy the delight of having family around you.
