This jumbo square (the green variety of foam) which measures 24″ x 24″ x 6″ was a find at Joann’s and with the discount coupon was a great bargain. It’s light enough for a little guy to tug around – especially with the help of a handle on the side. Double sided in Moon & Sun with Midnight Sky around the edges and Branches as handles and piping, it just invites the kiddies to dive on it.
Catherine, who sewed all these wonderful items, said it was a struggle to get the cushion into the case, which is hand sewn on (not removable)- but perhaps a nice long hidden zip the full width of a side would have made it much simpler- and certainly easier to clean should the need arise.
We topped it with a couple of pillows in Branches and Woolen Blanket. The ruffles add a touch of whimsy… even this little action hero dude can’t deny they’re fun.
Of course, one needs a place to store one’s books. This book sling is a pretty clever idea and great if you want to show off some fun fabrics – like this in bright, sunny Leaves.
