Rollie Pollie!

Meet, The Rollie Pollie bean bag chair. It’s a chair, it’s a toy, it’s your favorite pillow. Made of durable cotton twill or soft vinyl, each bag is actually a slip cover (with another Rollie Pollie inside) then filled with mounds and mounds of soft cluster stuffing. So if it gets dirty, just zip it off and throw it in the wash. And with a handle on top, it’s easy to toss around. Now, pick your favorite…. Drag it around, Dive right in! Or take a little nap. Build a Rollie-Pollie-man: kick off your shoes: Or do what I love best….find a yummy treat, and just relax, watching your favorite show. Who said you were a couch potato?

That you don’t wear anymore? Turn them into *pretty little pom poms! * they’re fun and easy to make and turn out oh-so-fluffy!

Here are the supplies that you will need: 1/2" elastic (I prefer the braided elastic)6" spools of tulle (found in any craft store, sometimes in the bridal section)1 yard of double faced satin ribbon (optional)needle and threadlarge book First, get your princess's waist measurement. My daughter is two, and her waist is just shy of 20". When I make her a tutu, I start with a 16 1/2" piece of elastic. Set your elastic aside, and get ready to cut your tulle. Ten inches is the standard length that I use when making a tutu. I am just noticing that it is a bit hard to see the orange tulle that I am cutting in this picture.

Once you are done cutting, you are ready to start tying. Find the middle slide the tulle under the elastic start your slip knot pull the ends through pull the ends down (this is a loose knot) this is what the loose knots for a play tutu should look like this is a tight knot Finally, I like to add a ribbon to my tutus. Go make a tutu!
