Number 11 on the list complete!

"Sew something and use it"

I found an online tutorial to make bean bags over at Lil Blue Boo and thought they were adorable. so I borrowed my mum's sewing machine, bought some fabric and got started. Mine are slightly different in that I have sewn felt letters on the top rather than using fabric paint. I am also using the same fabric for all 5 (to spell out OLLIE). I found a fabric that I thought looked quite crocodile-y since Ollie's room has a zoo theme and there are crocs on his border. I have not yet finished the other 4, but I can cross this off since Ollie is having fun playing with the first one (therefore being in use). He has never had a bean bag before and seems really intrigued by it.

I can't wait to finish the others!
