Happy Birthday Bennett!!! Today is Bennett's 1st Birthday! It is crazy to think that he joined our family back in October, but I can't imagine not having him around.
In honor of his first Birthday, I decided to make him a present! I had some left over blue fabric around that I thought would make the perfect bed for him to hang out on in the living room. He already had a bed, but it was now too small for him.
I cut out two 28 inch wide circles using the very scientific method of a sharpie and a 14 inch string. It worked like a charm!
I also cut a 4 inch strip to connect the circles to.
Then, I got out my trusty sewing machine.
And stitched each circle to the 4 inch strip. I left a small opening to turn it right side out and to stuff it with.
I used the stuffing from his old bed with some stuffing I took out of an old pillow to fill it. Once the remaining opening was hand stitched closed it was ready for him!
I will admit that at first he was content to just sit next to it. After we put him on it a few times with a toy though he understood that it was his. Now he loves to hang out on it. First Birthday is a success! And the best part is that I made it with stuff I already had around the house. Love you Mr. B!
