Also, since I am cheap. I found the chair next to the bed in the IKEA "as-is" section. I love this section. The chair was almost $15.00. It is a ladder-back chair. Except in this room it is not a chair, it is a bedside table. I draped an extra blanket over the back of the chair. I love this chair. I wouldn't like it much as a chair, but I love it as a table. I have a bit of a chair fetish. One cannot ever have enough cool, old, mismatched chairs.

You will need FREEZER Ziploc bags. The Freezer part is muy importante because of the double zipper. You will want these or the omelet will get wet. Ew.
Ryan and I LOVE Veggie omelets. Cheese, zucchini, onions, tomatoes topped with fresh homemade salsa.

Or a friend to cuddle like her?
This is a fun, easy project your kids will love. At my home, these projects have been named and are now my kids favorite friends.
Fabric Markers, Muslin, Stuffing (cost under $10)
Then, cut out the shapes leaving at least 1/4 inch for seam allowance. Like this:
Then, lay the art work face down on another piece of Muslin and cut another piece of fabric the same size. (My kids worried about this when they saw their artwork upside down- they thought I was doing it wrong). Sew the pieces together leaving an opening to turn it right side out.
Stuff and hand-stitch closed.
And the end result... happy kids, fun toys.
I have mentioned on my other blog that my daughter Sunny likes to dress fancy. Fancy always includes a Tutu. We make them often so we have plenty around when she has girlfriends over to play dress-up. She has enough laying around that she can even send them home with her girlfriends. I think she sends them home with friends so that she has an excuse to make a new one. They are easy, but a little more time consuming.
This next step is also totally optional. I wrap ribbon around the waistband because it makes it a little less itchy around the waist. Use 1 or 1.5 inch ribbon and wrap it around the waist. Tie a knot to start and wrap around the knot. Leave a tail when you begin and at the end. If you run out of ribbon, tie a knot and start a new ribbon to cover the knot.
This one turned out SUPER POOFY. Sunny thinks poofy makes it fancier. If you don't want it so poofy, just tie less on.

I posted a picture of these this week over on my Family Blog and had lots of people ask me how to make them.
