One of this weekend's little craft jobs was to make some simple drawstring bags for my granddaughter's toys so that things can be kept together. (At the moment there is a jumble of sticklebricks, duplo, wooden bricks and other bits and pieces at the bottom of the toy box.) My daughter hasn't got time to organise things (I don't know how she manages to parent a 20 month old and a 12 year old stepson as well as working...) So I asked if I could try out a couple of these bags. I'm making them in different colours with ribbon drawstrings so hopefully she can identify the contents of the bags by colour rather than me needing to label them - she can't read anyway! I'm hoping it will make it easier for her to play constructively, as she gets very bored. And as we look after her one day a week or more it will help us too. I have to admit that I do like order - not to the point of being obsessive about it, but I think I'm an organiser by nature (or nurture).

Was there meant to be a picture with that, Dandelion? You know it's a HML rule - if there's no picture, you didn't make it!

Just in time - the things were ready packed in my bag to take tomorrow! Very Happy Bags of different sizes, and a little crocheted blanket to wrap toys in to send them to sleep!!

If the idea takes off I'll buy some fabric with jollier patterns - I was just using what I had to hand. (Our nearest fabric shop still hasn't reopened after the lockdown, so I may have to go online.)

The crocheted blanket to send toys off to sleep is inspired!

Our granddaughter is getting to the point where she tries not to sleep during the day if she thinks there's anything exciting she might be missing, but can be persuaded to settle in her cot for a rest. So we've been doing lots of 'putting toys to sleep' during the morning, then she takes the little blanket (the one I photographed is a spare!) up with her and for some reason it helps her to sleep. I don't know why it works, but it gives us both a chance to draw breath!
