    I am sure I could figure it out with some directions. But that was so sweet of you to offer to send one. And the good thing I can get the dish towels at my mom's store.:D

    Yes, I use a pattern to sew the animals. I googled bean bags and easy sew and found free patterns.

    ABall if you have trouble get back in touch. They are quick, easy and fun to make.

    hescollin: in that first link, did you see those paper angels? I used to make those out of wall paper samples. (ask people like at Home Depot for old wall paper books and then you make them making a large cone for the body, 2 small ones for the arms, hot glue and then glue a wooden ball (ours were 1 inch wood ball) hot glue fake curly hair and then make wings using 2 cut outs for the wings or one side will not be wall paper looking.

    Package Recieved

    Wldywall was my secret pal, and I did not know things were going beyond her control keeping her from sending, but I understand now, so she sent everything in one box.:wub:

    Very nicely packaged in different little gift bags or wrapped up was:
    *Choxie Chocolate flakey truffles
    *mirrored little trinket box
    *Red Apple spice candle
    *Strawberries n creme candy
    *Coffee mug with Millstone Chocolate velvet & caramel coffees and vanilla chai tea (bigelow)
    *Pencil and pen set with grips and erasers And 2 sets of stickerdoodle stickers.
    *Card with picture of the beach and it sings Kokomo:whistle:
    This all the kinds of things I love to get and Everything got here in perfect shape. Please tell your dd she wrapped things very well.

    In the very begining of this I got a lovely PTA kind of cook book.

    Thank you so much, you were very sweet to send all of this. I am not sad about the secret pal stuff anymore. :hugs: I hope things ge better for you at school.

    I'm glad you got it okay! Yay!

    Just to let you know that cookbook is actually from a place called The Center for Women in Transistion. They help women who have had to leave a violent relationship, they are also the people that go to counsel rape victims at the hosptial and help women who are victims of any kind of violence get the counseling and help they need. (I just crossed out where it came from because the place is just to close to my house, I didn't want you to narrow down secret pals by that address! There was a lot of information about the community in there too)

    I am so glad you liked it all. I just have one problem, when I find something I think you will like, I don't need to buy it anymore. Whatever am I going to do with myself. :(

    So can I do it again with the new group stickynotes?????
