Projects: Part 1 The Poufs

With Casey being out of school this last week, I've been really motivated to work on some unfinished projects that had been cluttering up our house.  I'll start with my poufs.

I finished sewing the first one up a couple months ago, but I just couldn't quite figure out what I wanted to do for the filling.  It needed to be firm enough that people could sit on, but small enough that it could fit through the small hole I'd left to fill the pouf.  Also, whatever I used needed to be inexpensive.

Enter: ugly beanbag chairs.  We saw these while driving past a yard sale on our way to the park.  I said if they were still there on our way back then I would stop and look.  Obviously they were there, and I brought them home to finally finish my project. (You'll notice one is now lacking its filling.)

 And here they are (I made a second one a couple nights ago), in all their poufy glory.

The bunny park

The park has a real name, but I forget what it is.  Anyway, it's very cool-fountains shooting up, waterfalls, and dancing bunny sculpture. Owen and I went with some friends.  Owen loved it. (Photos by Amber)
