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!
