Christmas 2011 – The year small pieces invaded our home.
That really is the trouble with open-ended play type toys. They have pieces – lots of them. Small ones, now that my older children have graduated from toddler toys. Have you seen how small Polly Pockets shoes are? And have I mentioned Gladys is a mobile 9 month old who puts everything in her mouth? AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
I’m working to contain the crazy a bit. These bags are based on the tutorial by Susan of Crafterhours (guestposting at On the Laundry Line), and are made with old t-shirts, left-over bias tape, thrift-store zippers, clear vinyl, and about an hour of my time.
I would like to also make more puzzle envelopes as Gladys received some lovely ones for Christmas.
The original puzzle envelopes.
Look how little Duncan is! Has it really been that long?!
I’m not the only sew-happy mom on the web trying to reign in the chaos with some help from clear plastic vinyl.
Much better, right?
