My next crafty stage of development is learning knitting or crochet or both - I know some basic things, but can't make more than a single crochet chain or a knitted rectangle....hey - rectangles.... hmmmm - I wonder if I could join different sized rectangles?  Would that mean that *GASP* I would finally produce a final something from knitting???  I have a feeling her monkey would have to share a swing with her other toys.  Poor monkey, usually finds his way to the bottom of the bin...

Needs to wait  Undecided  until after the big birthday party weekend - lets see what colors of yarn I have...

sactownsue: believe it or not, I totally understood your post!  Stitching and sewing, now that I CAN do!  Thanks - I think I like the idea of wrapping the sides around and stitching it to the front and back - I covered the bottom, too, when I glued everything - the munchkin is 2 years old (for a few more days) and I didn't want her to try to peel it off - but if it were a cover, she could actually change them out if she had more than one!

You guys are awesome!

Yeah occasionally I make sense... Looking forward to seeing the finished project. It's not so bad just to give her the building blocks and just let her do whatever. I think that plastic stuff is safe... You could put little pieces of velcro on it if you want to change them. don't use the sticky velcro I hate it.

Yeah, velcro is awesome!  But the sticky stuff is awful.  I was so stupid and tried to run that stuff through my machine once...had to get my sewing machine serviced after that!   Roll Eyes
