to a child's first b-day? I sat here and asked myself that question just this am. I only got the invitation on Wed and the party is today. I have to and want to go, the child's older siblings are my 2 kids best friends and I watched Mama raise this kid so far. We work together and I knew her before the prego and since we bring our kids to work with us I feel bonded to this baby girl. So bowing out saying we have other plans (and we do) was not a way out of a gift. We will be going late as Peter has a T-ball game but still I want to make an appearance. So why am I posting on this board you may ask.
Together DH and I pulled our skills and made her....
A set of knitted bean bag balls. He sewed the bean bags and I knit a ball shape to put the bean filled cloth bags in. It took us 2 hours to make 3 balls but they came out so cute. Since I just used yarn and material I had laying leftover from other projects around the house and beans from my pantry they where free.
Pictures are comming. They are each approx the size of a tennis ball, I hope that is a good size for a 1 year old. Peter (3) and Tessa (22 months) loved them after getting hold of them one at a time as I was making them.
