When our grands spend the night here, they prefer to sleep in the living room.
I finally got around to sewing up a couple of pillow beds for them.
I used this tutorial
cozy pillow bed and it is clear and easy to follow.
I used 2 flat twin size sheets that were in my sewing supplies- that made it go even faster as I used the finished sheet edges and didn’t have many raw edges to finish. These 2 grands really like them!
I had 7 older pillows and my daughter passed on 5 more pillows. I plan on making a 3rd pillow bed, and will use a sheet for it too.
If I was buying new pillows, I would be sure to buy washable pillows- because kids are kids. I’ve had pretty good success machine washing and drying regular pillows too.
The sheet on the right is a vintage Holly Hobby one that I found at a thrift store years ago. I think it’s so sweet.
It feels good to do an easy and useful project without spending money or going to the store.
Elizabeth got this lava lamp lip gloss kit for Christmas and we made them this afternoon.
The kit had everything included except paper towels to clean up drips. The instructions were clear and not complicated.
The kids had fun making them but they don’t exactly look as great as the ones on the box.
The lip gloss is liquid as it’s just mineral oil with a little flavoring and coloring added to it.
It was a fun time but I don’t recommend this craft.
