The invasion ...

Posted on


A few weekends ago Moo, Megan and I packed up the car and sold our old toys at a nearly new sale .... sadly between 3 children I only manged to get them to part with 3 teddies! We are living in a house full of teddies. It doesn't matter where in the house I am there's a teddy there - staring and mocking me! Toilet .... small care bear on the radiator. Kitchen ... some kind of racoon type creature. Hallway ... Bronson the monkey.  I can't escape! 

teddy ... what i think

What I think Megan's teddies should look like ... 

really look like

Reality ....

Megan's are worse as she's a wriggler and on bottom bunk there are piles of them on the floor! I thought I'd buy her a teddy hammock ... however at nearly £10 for one net I decided to give it a whirl and make my own.  I've plenty of fabric and managed to find a spare hour (just!) and ran one up.  I searched and searched the net for ideas and I'm not going to bore you now with a step by step account of how I made it as there is a MOOverlous tutorial over on The Better Nester  - mine varied slightly in that I used cord left over from when I made drawstring bags and as it's on the bottom bunk have no hanging material or cord that could cause an accident. But here it is ...

Ta dah ....

I think it looks fab and so does Megan and better of all the teddies have not moved since Sunday ... phew!!!
