Free Pattern: Kids Rice Bags by Suzanne

Suzanne has one of my favorite blogs EVER! It's called Just Another Hang Up and I love her ideas. I'll just say that her grandkids are so lucky to have such a creative, fun grandma.

Suzanne has the cutest little rice bags for kids. Check these out:

Seriously, could they be any cuter? And you can get this pattern for FREE over at Suzanne's blog right HERE. What kid wouldn't feel better with this on an owie or a sore muscle. I love these. Suzanne, you are amazing. Thank you! Thank you!

I made a rice bag for my daughter and I like to joke that it makes good food storage because it turned out HUGE. We could live off the contents for a week, I bet! These little guys are about 5 1/2 inched tall... much more manageable.

For Easter this year, I am taking my family out to visit my sister. We are planning a fun little Easter egg hunt and I think I just have to make one of these for each of the kids. That would be 7 in all. Can I do it, slacker that I am?

Up and Coming: Aviary 2 by Joel Dewberry

OK... this is my favorite fabric line so far of 2011! It's called Aviary 2 by Joel Dewberry and I LOVE this! It should be out soon.

I really can't pick a favorite Coloway here, but if I HAD to choose, it would be the orange, brown, blue combo. What is it with me and orange lately?

Oh! But these colors rock my world, too! I might need to re-decorate my girls room!

Anyhow, I love this stuff! I got all the images over at Joel and Laurie's blog, right HERE.

AND.... did you read the blog? Because if you did then you saw this:

"Check back soon for a Sneak Peek of Joel's new "Heirloom" collection, and some patterns we will debut in Salt Lake this May."

A new line by Joel... always a plus! And the bigger plus is.....


I am so excited. There are some fun things happening here at Yards and Yards, and you guys will be the first to know. It's going to be fun!
