Hi guys, I'm new here. Actually, the only reason I made an account was to ask this question, but after looking around a little bit I've gotten curious so I just might stick around  Grin

I like to do crafty things, but I'm not much of a seamstress and apparently not very creative, either. I have a ton of flannel (it is really cute, I have a couple yards of brown and then a couple yards of a matching print with little owls on it) and I'm desperate to do something with. I was just wondering if anyone here had any ideas for some easy project that can be made with it.

Ps-I tried to make PJs by copying a pattern off of some old PJs I liked, but since the flannel wasn't as stretchy it ended up being too tight  Sad

Any ideas? Christmas gifts, perhaps? I really appreciate it!!

thanks so much!

I think you could probably make a rag quilt. It is really simple. Here is a tutorial if you decide you want to give it a try.http://ajpadilla.com/tutorials/rag-quilt
It doesn't have to be a bed size quilt. You could make a lap quilt to snuggle under when you are watching TV or reading.

2 or 3 layers of cotton flannel makes a comfy panty liner
