21  My first Quillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by mhills on: December 07, 2008 09:32:00 AM
I am not sure if this should be posted here so if it doesn't, please let me know.

I made the blanket top cotton (planets) the back is fleece and the pillow/pocket is cotton (stars- with batting).  It is quite large 44x88, so it covers my son's entire body (feet included).... I have seen these and the instructions say to just fold blanket into pocket but what I do is fold into fourths and then flip the pocket inside out so it is all nice and tight.  Very easy to make..

My son will use this for sporting events.  He can sit on for padding and when it gets too cold, he can open it up and use it as a blanket. He just loves it.  I have already been asked by my other sons and husband to make them their own.  Plus I have a couple that I am making for gifts...

Let me know what you think....


this is it all folded up but this is the back of pillow.  Wanted you all to see the colorful planet fabric


folded into thirds length wise to put into pillow


this is the entire blanket folded up into the pillow...

22  New Bag w/pockets in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mhills on: November 02, 2008 05:47:52 PM
I tried a new bag today... It turned out ok but I will be making some changes the next time.  I will be making it bigger.  This one is 8X10x4.  I would also make sure that my handles are lined up better on the bottom and make the handles longer so I can carry over my shoulder. Also, I would not stitch my straps until I actually add them to the bag. This way I won't have double stitches.  I would also make the 3 outside pockets bigger.  They are only about 4" wide each.

I love your tutorials.  They are always so easy to follow....  I love coffee and fell in love with this fabric.  Next time I will slip stitch the bottom, was running low on time, so I just stitched it....  Still love the way it came out...

Let me know what you think.. Thanks again for the tutorial

24  Ducks with Umbrellas ~ kids book/tote bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mhills on: August 13, 2008 11:21:12 PM
I found this fabric and fell in love with it.  I made a book bag for my 4 year old niece.  She loves to go to Borders and now she has a bag to put her books in.... 

This is the first kids bag I have made and some problems with the pocket inside.  But she's not going to care...

Let me know what you think

26  Breast Cancer Awareness Tote Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mhills on: July 29, 2008 04:59:00 AM
I found this great Breast Cancer Awareness fabric and had to make a great tote bag for my sister-in-law.  She is a breast cancer survivor.  I had a pocket cut out of the outer fabric to put inside and forget to include it.  I will on the next bag.

Let me know what you think.
