Default What I did instead of snacking

I have been very crafty lately. I have been trying to keep my hands busy so I snack less at night when I am watching TV. I start off not wanting to get food crumbs on it and end up entirely forgetting about trips to the kitchen.
For my boyfriend's birthday, I made him this:

It is a record bag made of wool felt and flannel. I hand stitched it.

The inside of the bag matches the umbrella and beach chairs

Detail of the front cover. It depicts the cover of Neil Young's On the Beach.
Being crafty always beats snacking.

I will right now I am just working on wash cloths for whoever will take them. I love my crocheted washcloths. Maybe I will work on stockings for the holidays.
