Bean Bag Buddies

I purchased my pair in 1999 so they are not that new, a decade is young for Ann and Andy. Aren't they cute? No embellishments, or fancy hair, just a panel of fabric. Commissioned by Applause under Johnny Gruelle rights.
These two have a ornament loop at the top of their heads and are filled 2/3 full of weighting beads. I think of them as bean bags, 6 1/2'' fits the hand so well.
What to do with them? C & G Design.

I don't know what to do with them, but they are cute.

After I wrote this text, I looked at the tag.....bean bags. Right now they are hanging off the red lamp in the raggedy corner, I'm sure they will be moved. Ummm, maybe the love seat, soon no one will be able to sit there!
Painting right now, you'll see 'bout it on Sun.
I jumped from the bellpull again, gosh I don't like that thing!

What is the bellpull?

Dawn said...

A bellpull is just a strap used to ring the church bells ages and ages ago. I might do a post on them as I don't think I'm keeping time with the clothscapes project. This is the last one! But the fabric is demin like, very tough. You can see it unfinished under the embroider label, last one. I'd started it once before, now I know why I quit. They are really pretty when done.

They are very cute. Why do you not wanting anyone sitting on the loveseat?

Dawn said...

No one does sit on the loveseat, just has the triple Ann and Andy on one side of it. Gotta go hang out laundry, music mtg at the school tonite, Madame is playing sax. Oay Vey. Offered to give up her b-day for it!

As soon as I saw the loops for hangers, I was thinking, hummm Ann & Andy themed Christmas tree.

Dawn said...

That sounds more like it! Where do you come up with your ideas Skeeter?

I am a big nut for Christmas trees and themes. I have bought ornaments everywhere we visit. I put up 5 themed trees in the house each year. So that thought seem to come naturally to me..
