My son told me Monday that he 'had nothing to do'. Really? We live on 10 acres, have a barn full of toys and a room full of toys, more books that I can count and you have nothing to do!!??
So I started him sewing. On the perfect project. A new dog bed. Doesn't have to be perfect and he can get a feel for how the machine works.
We stuffed it with left over batting scraps. These are either too small to piece back together, or trimmings from quilts. Makes great stuffing!
The finished product. Its' just a big rectangle of corduroy with stuffing bits in it. I have about 10 yards of the powder blue corduroy. Seriously. I found it at a thrift store for a couple of dollars.
