Monday Makers #38 :)

Presenting ... pickle bag!  This is a gift for our oldest son's girlfriend - her birthday is coming up :)

Note the zipper pull charms - she's a hairdresser, so I thought these would be appropriate :D

Here are some Flickies (the official name I made up for them :D) I made for a friend's daughter - she wanted something for the kids at camp to help them focus, and asked if I could make her some tiny taggy type pillows - these are 4" square (except for the mutant one top row middle, where I discovered I was very bad at eyeballing square size, and used 6.5" squares instead of 5" squares, lol - maybe she can use it as The (Booby) Prize of the Day :D) :)

I picked up a mesh laundry bag from the $ store and added a carabiner at the top - I thought this would be a great way to carry and store the Flickies @ the camp, and they'd air out each time they're stored :)

And now, for this week's Monday Makers!  I'm going to try out this Polar Bear Floor Pillow - I picked up a 20" pillow form @ Walmart and have lots of chenille fabric in stash - it looks like a fun project! If it works out nicely it will be a Christmas gift :) (Sorry about the horrible picture - that blob of black in the front didn't look as bad in person as it does in this photo - UGHHH!  It's only a tiny part of the project, but it surely is adding a lot of ugly to the photo, lol.

Posting to Monday Makers! #38  (if I'm on time!) :)


  1. Eeep, another pillow! Looking forward to the finished polar bear!!

  2. Love the pickle bag and I'm off to follow the bear (link) :-)

  3. Love the pickle bag, and Flickies - lol, good name! Brilliant to put them in a mesh bag. Ooh that polar bear pillow looks awesome -

  4. Cute little bag! I think the pull is perfect, and you need to snap that kind of thing up when you find it.
