It has been YEARS since I crocheted, and I was never very enthusiastic about it.  I'm not sure I could locate my needles.  But, I am very proficient at sewing.

Recently, I came across some granny squares that were made by my Aunt's long deceased mother.  There are nine squares and they are 5" square.  I thought that maybe I could make something out of them for my aunt for Christmas.  I was originally thinking Christmas ornaments, but I have no idea how I'd do that. 

Does anyone have any advice or suggestions??

Thanks in advance.

Maybe a pillow?  You could sew the squares together, 3x3, using a whip stitch, and then sew on a fabric square for the back, or some such.
