As of tonight I have just 2 on the hop as I have finished the first. Whoop whoop!
So... when I was walking through The Warehouse searching in vain for hot water bottles (at the beginning of winter, nowhere to be seen, grrrr!!!) I saw a stack of these:
|Don't be fooled by the $9.00 barcode sticker - there was another sticker hidden on the packaging that said $9.99 and guess how much they charged me ... double-grrrr!|
My thoughts went immediately to some Marimekko print cotton I had at home and decided this would be the next project for ME. Not for the boys, for ME. Something beautiful to have in the house that is also useful and makes me smile. (And fingers crossed, will not be hijacked to store some of Mr T's collection of balls.)
So I took it home, checked it out, took a couple of shots to remember how it originally looked...
|Ugly, scratchy nylon-y, and pink... and in the background is a small collection of the enormous number of balls in this house.|
|Note that it is sewn on, so if it gets dirty and needs a wash you have to do it by hand as it won't 'slip' off the metal frame.|
|Yay! Yes it's a bit lopsided but that's what you get for rushing things...|
|The material is attached by resin snaps for easy removal - handy for washing, repairs or fixing up the rush-job mistakes. Oops!|
