Happy Friday everyone! Such an odd week since Monday was off...I've been a day off all week!
About a month ago I posted on a local FB page to see if any other moms were interested in doing a busy bag swap. A "busy bag" (as we defined it) is a small activity for a toddler-preschool age child that can fit in a gallon size ziploc bag. They are perfect for restaurants, church, dr appts, etc..
The great thing about a swap is we each created our bags eight times, easier and cheaper! And then we swapped! I made these Color Strips. I searched pinterest all evening for my idea. I just knew I wanted something that used fabric lol :)
I came across a pin from this shop. It was the perfect activity for me to create! I stripped pieced the whole thing, they're 4.5" strips CUT (4" squares finished). I added ribbon on the end so they can be rolled and tied together.
Most of the items to color match I found at Dollar General but I did pick up a few from Joann (and my own random stuff!). Every color has at least 3 but some like pink and blue have quite a bit more!
I made 9 (I only needed 8) but my strip piecing made 9 so I may as well! I have a sweet little niece who would love a game like this so I'll send a little pack her way.
There you have it! I hope you enjoy your weekend!!
