1  Re: What are you making for Christmas this year (2008)? in Winter Holidays by joyfulheart on: August 05, 2008 11:34:15 AM
OI posted this on the other christmas thread, but thought I'd reply here too since this one gets more participation...


I just finished these lastnight.

I'm going to fill them with supplies (super cheap right now) and give to the kids' teachers at Christmas. 

Since I used fabric I already had, this was a CHEAP but nice project!

What do ya'll think?



To give credit, the pattern came from the book (www.zippystrippyquilts.com). 

I love making these!  Each one was under 30 minutes to make!  My only problem is that there is NOBODY in my family that would appreciate these.  The teachers are the only one's who might. 

Doesn't it bite to have family that dont appreciate homemade???





NOW, for an idea for the MEN-- my kids came up with this and I thought it was BRILLIANT!

If you have a man that goes camping/outdoors alot, the stores sell fleece bags that you put inside your regular sleeping bag to make it warmer.  My boys wanted them and I kept telling them no.  Well, they saw my big fleece pile in the closet that I never got around to using, and they came up with making those fleece bags! 

What a great gift idea for men!  And a great way to use up that fleece when it goes on sale super cheap!

Just a thought!

3  Need cake ideas a 9 year old and 7 year old can make for contest in Dessert by joyfulheart on: July 18, 2008 05:14:08 PM
I need to find some boyish cakes that are simple enough for boys to make for a cake decorating contest.  They're supposed to do as much of the work as possible (I do the oven stuff to keep them from being burned, but otherwise it's all them)  So it does have to be easy but I really want something DIFFERENT.

Does anyone have pics or ideas for us?

Thank you so much!


This is what one of them did last year for cub scouts and won silliest

4  Do Raggy strip quilts count? in Quilting: Completed Projects by joyfulheart on: June 28, 2008 04:09:38 PM
I made my first ever raggy quilt. 


Did it for my boys who are obsessed with Finding Nemo.  Now I wish I had made it larger since they all 3 fight nonstop to be under it at the same time!

From start to finish, got it done in under 5 hours, and that's with 3 boys helping!  That's about all the time I can manage nowadays before I put it in the corner and forget about it.  (dont look in my closet of shame, please!)

Here's my next project I plan to copy in CORDUROY!  OOOH, I just LOVE corduroy!  I can't wait!


Used the book from
www.zippystrippyquilts.com
 


And no, I'm not the author, it's not my site.  I just really like making these!

I have no idea for most of my family.  I guess I need to actually make a list or something.  Lists are depressing me though.  LOL

I'm now obsessed with making zippystrippys.  cant stop making them.

www.zippystrippyquilts.com 

No, this is NOT my site, but I just love making these!  The pattern book (in full color!) gives instructions to make a bunch of different sizes.  I can belt one of these out in 5 hours, including clipping and washer/dryer time.  And that's with 3 boys "helping" me nonstop.   Roll Eyes


I'm going to do my next one in corduroy.  Here's what my next one will look like (hopefully) since I'm going to try to copy it!  LOL

I love this quilt.  I dream about this quilt.  I MUST make this quilt!

I told myself it will be for my mother, but there's no way I'm gonna be able to part with it.  might have to make TWO!

Here's my first one that I made-- made in flannel in a Finding Nemo theme (my boys love that movie)
made theirs small but now wish I had made it bigger since all 3 fight to be under it at the same time.  LOL
