Stuffed Animal Bean Bag

I saw these awesome storage bean bags on Boon, but they are like $80! So I made my own, out of $8 worth of fabric (4 yards) and a $2 zipper. It took about 2 hours to make it. I made it a little too big, it is the shape of a fat cylinder. Four foot diameter circles on the top and bottom, and eighteen inch strip of fabric around it. Even though it is huge, it is full....meaning Connor has WAY too many stuffed animals! It really makes a comfy seat. I had to take out the talking animals, they were getting annoying.

Car Pouch/Car Mat

I made this little play mat for Connor while he was away at Aunt Jessica's/Grandma's house this past weekend. It transforms into a pouch that can hold his cars, hopefully this will help us not lose so many. I wanted to do more embroidering on it, but the Walmart here does not sell embroidery floss. They told me other places to go, but I get lost to easily in this town. I had to make due with whatever bits of floss I had left over from other projects.

Monkey Bread

4 cans refrigerator biscuits
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
3/4 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed

Melt butter on stove top, stir in brown sugar. Make a carmelly mixture, and allow to cool for about ten minutes. In the mean time, cut the biscuits up into quarters. Toss the biscuits in a bag white sugar and cinnamon. Make sure they are coated extra good. Put into a well greased bundt pan and poor carmel mixture over the biscuits. Cook for 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees.
