May For Me - Day 21
This weeks challenge for Clover & Violet's Summertime Adventures was childrens' toys. I found this cute tutorial at Just Another HangUp for a rice filled 'boo-boo' ice pack. I changed them into a version of 'Angry Birds' bean bags to take to my grandson's up coming 5th Birthday party. Being there will be little ones from 2-5 yrs. old (most throw backwards), I filled them half with fiberfill and half cup of plastic 'doll' pellets. I put them in a cup while filling to catch any loose pellets. Then put a bit of fiber fill to hold pellets while I stitched the opening closed. Made a little mesh bag to hold those birds when not in play and I drug out my old hula hoop - Yes, still have it. Now they can play a safe game of tossing the birds into the hula hoop.

Yes, my Birthday is this week - the 23rd to be exact. Thank you all for helping me celebrate so far this month. SO a special week, a special give away::::
A jelly roll for each day!!!!! Moda Marbles, 'Puttin' on the Ritz by BunnyHill (blue), 'Little Rascal' by Chloe's Closet, 'Etchings' by 3 Sisters, and Grand Finale by Sandy Gevais. What do you have to do? Well be a follower - this party is for you .(NO THIS IS NOT IN THE SEWMAMASEW GIVE AWAY) I will ship international. Answer this question to enter:
If you could, as a May For Me treat to yourself, have any one designer or teacher come to your home for a personal 'one-on-one' class - who would it be and why? (This was our behind the scenes conversation) I would love to have Bonnie Hunter come and play along in my scraps - she has been in NY state twice recently and I couldn't get in the classes.
Comments will be open until Saturday, May 26 8PM and I will announce by 9PM (EST)
