Couch Caddy

Today Hunter had Thanksgiving Dinner at school. It was real nice, they had tablecloths and placemats on all the tables. It was a real nice dinner, and it meant a lot to the kids. Of course, when I was leaving, Hunter wanted to come home with me. But I made him stay the rest of the day. They are out of school all next week for their Fall break.

After I got back, I started working on this! You can't tell a lot about it in the photo, but it is a "couch caddy" It has several little pockets that are great for storing things in. I thought I would make some of these for Christmas gifts. This one will go to my MIL.
Here is the actual photo from the pattern, you can tell more about it in this photo. It is a Lazy Girl Designs pattern. Very fast and easy, I had it done in less than an hour. Now I just need to figure out how many more of these that I need to make before Christmas.
Tomorrow, I have the honor of watching my brothers two boys! :) I don't get to spend as much time with them as I would like to, so I am excited about it. They are 1 and 3, so wish me luck!!! They are such cute little fellows, I will have to take some photos of them. They are the ones that I made the John Deere quilt and the Turtle quilt for them for Christmas.
Off to start dinner.....spaghetti and garlic toast!!!!

That caddy looks very handy..

A 1 yr old and a 3 yr old... either or would scare me silly, Let alone them both at once LOL... I wasn't around babies a lot as a kid, and then after we married and couldn't have any..well I just never have been around them a lot ... I don't have a clue what to do with a baby and a 1 yr old is for sure a baby still to me LOL...

I do much better with kids once they are house broke...LOL

The couch caddy is a great idea, my mother-in-law would love one too! In less than an hour to make a gift is wonderful!!
Wishing you a good night sleep so you'll be well rested for tomorrow!

I love the caddy!! I have been looking for a pattern for something like this so I immediately looked up the shops that sell this pattern and ordered it already.

Thank you!
