First off, I used Amanda Jean's tutorial for the storage cube. I've been wanting to try this for ages - oh my gosh, so easy! No idea why I waited so long. The box for Reggie was pretty big - 9 1/2" square so I ended up using plastic canvas on the inside for stability instead of cardboard as she suggests. (None of my cereal boxes were big enough!) Seriously, I'll be making many more of these. Cute organizing containers are so expensive these days, this is a great way to save some cash!
The balls are made from this pattern with a little variation. I skipped the circles on the ends and used the same fabric for all the pieces. These are a little trickier than the box, but still pretty simple. I stuffed them with poly-fill and some rice so they are the perfect throwing weight!
Reggie turned one a couple months ago. Sadly, my handmade boy gift ideas seem to run out at about that age. That is of course until he's ready for a skull scarf! :)
P.S. My e-mail is broken and it's driving me crazy!
