Bean bags

I was on my way to the grocery store this morning to get lentils and split peas, and I didn't want any plastic bags. So, I quickly sewed up a couple of bags to put the beans in. This one is squarish, with the tie sewed on about 1/3 of the way down the back. Then you just roll the corners of the top in and down a few times, wrap the ties, and knot them.

I made a long skinny bag out of the blue and brown fabric, with a drawstring at the top, but a seam came loose while I was filling it with lentils, so that one had to come back home empty to have the seams reinforced.

Sunday Sewing

Doll diapers, very small.

Minky whale. Very soft. Made from lavender and green scraps.

Bottom of whale.

Front of whale. Had trouble envisioning how the bottom piece would fit in. I knew it had to be shaped like a pointed oval, but I didn't quite see it until I was almost finished sewing and found myself with that triangle space, and no lavender to fill it.

ETA: The whale, if you turn it on its front end, looks like a penguin. And it is now, along with the diapers, on a plane to Tennessee.
