Last year we bought some new bedsheets, and they came in drawstring pouches. I saved them thinking they might be useful, and I have recently realized they'd be perfect to wrangle some of the loose toys that like to hang out all over the house. I used mostly back stitch and a teeny bit of satin stitch. They were a quick and easy project but pretty satisfying in the end.

(Unfortunately the photos aren't the best. Please pardon all the wrinkles. I didn't feel like ironing something that would just get all wrinkled up again. Wink)



The first is a bag for holding puzzle pieces. I traced a couple of puzzle pieces onto the bag and just did basic lettering using two strands of each color of floss for a blended look.



The second is for Fisher Price Little People pieces. I found some coloring pages online and cut and pasted what I needed out of those before printing and tracing onto the pouch.



Thanks for looking!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

That's a great idea! 

Hmmm...I have a toddler, and a few of those bedsheet drawstring bags laying around too...would be a great way to teach sorting!

Really great idea to find the coloring pages.  And so resourceful to just trace the puzzle pieces directly!

Thanks. Smiley My daughter definitely doesn't completely appreciate it, but she does tell people, "Look what Mommy made for me!" and tells me, "That's pretty, Mommy. Good job!" Even though she probably doesn't totally understand what all that means, I'll take the compliments anyway. Wink

Go for it! It would be great for Barbie things, and I bet you could find great coloring pages to trace for that.

What a clever idea! It's great to see people recycling things that otherwise get tossed in the trash. With a little revamping and imagination, anything can be turned into something useful! Great job!  Cheesy
