The photo doesn't really do it justice. Today I combined this tutorial and a video I saw online to make Isabella a beanbag chair which is filled with her huge collection of cuddly toys.
I used the left over material from her cushions to help the colours match but I'm not thrilled with the effect. The project was quick and easy though. I enjoyed making this and getting to grips with the sewing machine again.
It's actually very comfy and we did today's bedtime story here tonight.
We've had a manic full work week here. We had a lovely day in Schneverdingen last weekend for a family confirmation and the kids loved it. After a quick turn around, Isabella was away for two nights on her first Kindergarten trip. She had a whale of a time and came back shattered.
I took her to work with me on Thursday, which went well, and Joshua had a good week in nursery.
Yesterday I had my dermatologist appointment - all good there. I also had lunch with a friend and took the kids out for a playdate.
Nico has a stack of exam marking this weekend so I'm getting the kids out of his hair this morning while we shop and run some errands, then we'll be watching the royal wedding.
We've got another long weekend here so hopefully we'll squeeze in some family time as well as getting on top of our jobs and hopefully a bit of crafting!
