A couple of quick projects.

I made these today using this pattern. They're very easy and quick to make (which is funny given how much they cost to buy!). The monster one is for my oldest, and matches his hat. The owls are for my daughter, and match hers! I learned a few lessons. The first one, I screwed up and sewed the short side first which gives you a tube that stretches up and down, not across. Don't do this. Both of these, in retrospect, I made "upside down" meaning that I'd prefer the seam on the bottom instead of the top. Oh well, I'll know better next time! Given that we *need* to play outside this afternoon, I think they'll come in handy! Now I just need to whip one up for the other kid or he's going to be very sad.
