A Little Update

I just wanted to let you all know that we recently updated the website with some of the more popular products, as well as pricing.
There is also a chart showing approximately how many letters & spaces you can fit on the various size discs.
So head on over to www.whatnots.co.za for a peek.
If you don't see what you want over there you can mail me for a quote !

And here's just a pendant I finished the other day

Another Bean Bag

Finished my little girl's bean bag this last Friday, and think they look quite nice & cheerful in the play room, also if we need more space they stack on top of each other no problem!

I've got a bunch of left over fabric and another fabric I think could work quite nicely with the ones I've already used...so think I may still make another 1 or 2 for when we have friends over!

Personal Project - Bean Bags!

It's been a while since I posted one of my personal projects...in fact it's been a while since I even had any time to do any other crafting!
Recently though we donated some couches to my BIL who moved into his own place, and the kids were left short of a place to sit.
After looking around for a bean bag we found there were 2 classes of beanbags out there;
a) those that were affordable, but not very nice
b) those that were very nice, but not affordable at all!
Then someone suggested making one, so I went for a bit of a wander around the world wide interwebz, pulled out my sewing machine & overlocker and went shopping

Then I was ready to turn this
Into this:
The beanbag has an inner "cushion" and a removable, washable outer cover
It also has a handle - which has proven to be quite important ;)
One down and one or 2 more to go...I'll keep you posted on how the others turn out!
