Sling Chair

We have been in need of some more outdoor chairs. So when I found these plans:
I knew I wanted to make these. I ordered the fabric and last weekend got the wood. It is pretty comfortable I must say. The kids love it. This is the adult size. They are already hounding me that I have to make 3 kid chairs. :) It still needs some work. I have to sand and stain it. Building it only took about 1 hour and sewing the fabric pieces about 30 minutes.

It is adjustable so you can recline to an almost flat position. It also folds up flat for storage. The fabric is woven through the slats with dowels (like a curtain) so you can take it off and throw it in the washer. Nice!

This week my big kids are at Zoo Camp. It is all week day camp at the KC Zoo. They have been having a blast. The teachers said Dominic did excellent. We made it there on time, I picked them up on time and we didn't forget lunchs or anything. Success!! One morning my sister and her baby met us there to see the Zoo. It was fun. Zoey stayed awake the whole time and might have even noticed some of the animals. She will be more into it next year. :)

Retro Fabric diaper bag.

I found this link to make your own tote bag. It was a little different than bags I had made before but overall I really liked it. I made it in one evening. I totally love this mushroom fabric. I have had it for a while now and looking for a great project to use it on. So this will be my new diaper bag. The inside fabric is some espresso upholstery fabric I had left over from my headboard project for my bed. It is nice and thick and washable. I think it turned out great. Notice how all the fabric lines up and everything. YEAH! I love it when it works out the first time.

It has a brown courdory pocket on the outside of the front.

It has three pockets across on the inside.
