We bought a wicker set for the fale at the pool so the hammock finally needed a bag for when it's down:
Following Svetlana's tutorial on http://sotakhandmade.blogspot.com/, this little drawstring bag, slightly enlarged from her version, now keeps our Mexican Hammock tangle-free.
Our boys have outgrown their dinosaur print Venetian blinds, and when we looked around Spotlight last week, we couldn't find what we were looking for. We ended up buying a roller blind replacement set (basically a cardboard roll with spring inside and attachments) and with a bit of trial and error, I came up with this Make 1:
I bought the fabric at Ikea in July, and it definitely needs lining still - Suz and I had look and we think buying some black lining would be best (it's great to have your friend just up the road!!!). It needs to come down a bit more once we have bought some anchor bolts. I am not overly fond of seeing the roll when the blind is down, but I wanted the width; I have seen some box-type covers before, will go and check at the hardware store.
Once it's all done = Make 2, we will let the other boys choose if they want this style, too :)
I have a bit of work to do, but I hope I get my Subway blocks done before I go back to work! And then there's the quilting of Fireworks, and the Hands.... No rest for the wicked!
