We are in the process (read: it is still a big mess) of rearranging our basement, which is really just one small room. I am happy to bid farewell to our 11 year old tv that hums intermittently, and it is amazing what rearranging furniture can do for a room. If you have little kids, you may be familiar with the “scattering and multiplying” effect that often occurs with small items–army men, cars, legos and the like don’t like to stay in the same place. Ever.
I took a break from sorting toys this weekend to sew up a few drawstring bags using Jeni’s fabulous tutorial. I’m hoping (ha!) this will help contain the chaos, and discourage the “flip and dump” method often used when playing. I’ll let you know. For me, I’m just happy to use some of my favorite fabrics on items I will see everyday.
