I thought it was time to catch up on the Danish parenting-magazine-scene. As I haven't bought these for a while, I thought I would see if they had some new designers for fun toys, interiors or funky clothes, but to my huge disappointment there was nothing new to report, apparently. Instead I enjoyed my "koldskål" with "kammerjunkere" and my daughters art.
The kids were both home today, so we had some "slow time" and a little crafting going on. My son has asked me for the longest time, to sew him something, so after he saw the Bunny Bed Bag - he was sold! That's what he wanted, except for a little twist and turn, here and there!
He surely has an opinion for everything! Of course the overall look of fabric, animal and style but also, he made it very clear, that he wanted me to use the right color thread. What type of handles the bag should have, which he thought hard about and wavered between a few options! The size of the pocket inside. The size of the beak on the penguin. The shape of the FEET of the penguin. And so forth. Phew. At one point Mommy wasn't having that much fun!
We worked around a penguin - the one to the far right - from an old MS Kids magazine and even though I had some similar fabric, the boy said "dark blue, orange beak and feet and white belly!" For the bag he was very excited to see that, I had both dark and light blue Rasmus Klump fabric. The light one went for the bag and the dark for the pillow and quilt inside.
Now he's on to fish for the penguin, but that'll be another day......they will be orange, he said....right now my husband is tucking both kids in and I like that.....
