|Yep - spilled my Diet Dr. Pepper on the table beside my sewing machine ...|
|... and on the floor ...|
|... and of course, all over the fabric I was sewing :D Fortunately I had cut extra pieces so I brought these upstairs to soak, and continued on with the project :D|
|The project is called Pyramid Bean Bag Toss Game, but I'm calling it Flying Monkey Toss game because of the fabric I chose :D The tutorial is here - mine is a bit bigger than the original and measures about 30" tall by about 48" wide at the widest part. The bag on the left is the drawstring bag I made to hold the entire set - the game "board" folds up and will fit easily in the bag, as do the game pieces.|
|Here's the back of the game board - I added a tic tac toe board (made from ribbon) so the kids could play that game as well - they can use the game pieces from the Flying Monkey side :D|
|Two mesh drawstring fish shaped bags - I made these for some greats that get to visit warm places more than I do! I thought they could use these for carrying shells and/or beach toys :) The tutorial is here - I resized these down to about 75% of the original pattern. The mesh is from some mesh drawstring bags from a $ store - I can't find them anymore, sadly - this is really nice mesh - firm and plasticy - very easy to stitch! Need to find more :D|
Those projects finish the gift "set" I wanted to make - I have to get everything packed off and mailed ASAP so it arrives in time! The two fish bags and the drawstring carry bag qualify for Bag It, so I'm off to upload them there - then I have to go clean up my sewing room and get ready for the next project that I need to get done, LOL. Nothing like leaving things until almost the last minute!
