You know when you reorganize and clean up you find things that you forgot about?!!! Yikes - it happened to me - 6 Yards of really cute flannel fabric - donated to the quilt guild - taken home by me (several months ago) to stitch up into something for our Wee Care Program.
Voila - 4 very nice sized (they measure about 40" square - I made mine a big bigger than in the tutorial) self-binding receiving blankets ready to go!! I used this tutorial to make them.
Okay, so found something else when sorting through drawers - a John Deere Tractor Panel with some John Deere Fabric. Add a border of yellow gingham, baste, simple cross hatch quilting and machine attached binding and a cute quilt for a wee one for the Wee Care Program.
Since I was on a roll with Community Service Projects for the guild, the third project is what is called CPS (Child Protective Services) bags. When a child is removed from a home. their belongings are placed in a pillow cased sized drawstring bag. We try to make them cheerful and fun - but they also have to be sturdy. Mikkie, out oldest daughter, sells baby swings on an etsy shop called Texas Cotton Tales. She uses duck fabric and she had a box of leftover strips. So I took those strips and stitched up 5 drawstring bags.
Hope they put a smile on one little face in a tough situation.
Blessings my sweet blogging friends!
