Last week, I couldn't find any mesh toy holders that hang on the wall. All of my local stores told me to buy them online or travel forty minutes to get one. So, I took matters into my own hands and tried my hand at creating my own. Here is the 2nd one I made. It turned out best, so I pictured it first. It was left folded in half, the way it comes off the bolt of fabric, so the nap of it was 'not stretchy',
whereas this first one I made is overly stretchy and doesn't hold as many stuffed animals before it sinks into the hanging rack below it. This one was unfolded and hung lengthwise, so the whole contraption stretches. :o(
Below are some photos of the only materials I used, aside from a few eye hooks.
The braiding cords were $1.99. Pack of six buttons $2.97. Remnant of fun fabric cut into strips $.50. Mesh fabric, 2 yards, $2.99 each yard.
Total cost of project about $12.00, less than the cost of one plain, white mesh hammock before shipping costs. And much more beautiful to look at.
39 WEEKS PREGNANT & A SHORT HAIRSTYLE
I have a fettish, lately, for decals, so I added some yellow flowers and diamond gems to my toes for accents.
Did I share these with you yet? I ordered all-in-one cloth diapers from a woman on Etsy. She began making them for her own children and now sells them at an extremely reasonable price so that other mother's can afford them also. Every order is custom. YOU get to choose the fabric/pattern/color. I chose these five to start. I plan to use them at home only, but if I change my mind and venture out of the house with cloth diapers on my son, I hope to order more from Nicole. Her handiwork is quality!
Tori and I went berry picking with friends recently, and this is our treasure of berries. We only picked for and hour or so, because it was hot out and it wore on me quickly. The plan was to freeze the raspberries for my muffins, but when we returned home, we quickly found other uses for them...
