Here's another late Christmas post! Inspired by an episode of Kirsty's Homemade Home in which she made a beanbag with Manda from TreeFall Design, I decided to make a toddler-sized version as part of Freya's Christmas present.

Manda's pattern was sold out at the time so I hunted about and found this free version which has a child and adult size. I raided my fabric stash and used a combination of vintage sheets and curtains in golds and oranges. This was really fun to make - like stitching together a giant chocolate orange!

So far, Freya doesn't quite seem to know what to make of her new bedroom furniture - I had visions of her clambering all over it to read her books, but at the moment she's more interested in the fun rustling sound it makes when you hit it than sitting on it!

The other newest addition to her room is also in this photo - Dobbin the Rocking Horse was her Christmas gift from Grandma and Grandad and was originally the equestrian friend of yours truly! He's a very noble chap with enormous amounts of patience and good listening skills!
