These days when I start making something I think to myself “keep the camera handy”, “remember to take pictures along the way”. It is a bit alien to me, to be taking pictures of the back of fabric, the workings and the how I did it bit. I just want to make the thing, it be perfect and then be able to show it off. So this is all a bit of change of mindset for me.
So this week I decided that I would finally, and seeing as we are now using the chair from Isabel’s room in the shop, make the beanbag I have been promising her.
There seem to a be a real multiplicity of ways you can make beanbags, and they are all slightly different, I found this one online http://www.michaelmillerfabrics.com/Blog/bean_bag_chair.pdf. It seemed straight forward and gave a really full look that I like. The instructions are great, easy to follow and clear.
So I got on with it, and in the blink of an eye it was finished. What this is error, i hear you cry? Well with all my eagerness to get on, I did just that, here is a picture of some fabric,
and here is a picture of it finished.
On the plus side, she LOVES it!
Sorry I promise to do better next time and take more pictures!
