So seriously I message my sister and asked her what she thought and she agreed these would be awesome. I thought that the tutorial seemed simple enough so I made this my mission. I think I shared at one point the fabric options I have my sister during one of many trips to Joann Fabrics where I got a fabulous deal on this really nice & thickish fabric. I debated for the longest time because I didn't just want a really basic cotton fabric and I wanted it to be kind of age nuetral considering the 5 y.o, 2 y.o and 2 months.
I did this in two phases- I got my stuff cut out one day and the trim put on (which I bought the wrong thing first, so the wrong stuff is on in these pictures)
I then pinned my felt circle to the fabric and cut out 6 big old circles.
Circle # 1- oh my goodness!!
All 3 sets of all the pieces for this crazy project. I'd say it easily took about 2.5 hours for all the "prep work"
I didn't take pictures of the "during" process, but the tutorial linked above is amazing and she did a fantastic job that even a dingy slacker sewer like me was capable of following! (see, there is hope!!!)
Now, onto the finished products. I made one the first evening and then the other two the next afternoon. To say I was ecstatic with the finished products would be a complete understatement. Are they perfect? No. Do I really care? No! They each have a little flaw were something went a little wonky but I am so pleased with my DIY that I really didn't even care.
And if I wasn't crazy enough, I decided to make a few teeny pillows for the kiddos to add to the mix. Sorry for the weird coloring, I took this on my cell and I think I had it on a weird setting. Either way, still loving how these turned out!
