One, Two, Buckle Your… Stuff.
One of my friends in my neighborhood sent me this link a few weeks ago and asked if I would make something similar for her little boy. She is headed on a very long drive with two small children and was in serious need of distractions. I finished it up yesterday (and she’s not leaving until Sunday, a serious accomplishment on my part!). This morning Creamie got to try it out. She thinks it’s fantastic.
It’s basically just a buckle toy. A bunch of buckles and some ribbon and hopefully hours (or at least one good hour) of entertainment. I also added a velcro pocket on the back side, which is solid blue denim. I wish I had thought to put a strap on it so it could also be a bag…. ah well. I did add a ribbon strap on the bottom so it can be rolled up and tied closed. I hope that it does it’s job keeping the little guy happy for a while in the car.
I have been working on Creamie’s big girl quilt today. I got it all laid out and ready to sew together. Hopefully I can get the top sewn together before the end of the week. I sure hope so. She’s been needing it for almost six months now! I also have three quilts that are completely finished, except for the binding. And piles of fabric to make 4 more. When did I become a quilter? How did that happen exactly?
