Pretty cool; I like the pop art style one on the far right, and I dig the LEGO occupants in the final photo!

My daughter makes them. She's a big fan too.

That's amazing! I love the handle. I want to learn how to do that someday.

These are just basic box bottom bags for pencils or cosmetics and the like. I made some for some big Doctor Who fan friends birthday and they went over really well. I found the charms on Etsy really cheap like less than a dollar a piece and just used cell phone lanyards for the zipper pulls.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Kids Spend, Save, Give wallets on: February 14, 2016 04:11:31 PM
I started making these zipper wallets for my kids. I have 7 and trying to teach them money management like I'm learning in Life Leadership's Financial Fitness I'm doing. Each kid gets a set of 3 wallets that are fully lined and have iron on labels of "spend" "save" and "give" on them. The idea is that 10% of their allowance goes to give, 10% to save and the 80% left over is for spending on stuff they need or want. They have simplified check book style sheets for them and we made like a savings thermometer looking chart for those kids that are saving for something specific (like my 13 year old wants a new ipod touch)

Very nice! I've been wanting to do one with all the blacks/whites/grays I have on hand (for some reason I have a lot of them and never use them). I just wasn't sure how it'd come out but yours looks great!

i got why you chose that pattern, so i don't think it's too obscure.  there is actually an autism puzzle fabric available online too.

i have two kids on the spectrum as well(and two other young children) and i am greatful that living in Canada means I don't pay out of pocket for treatment, but it also means less services and long wait lists, and sometimes being told flat out that there is not enough funding available to help anyone else.  I envy your ability to be so cheerful and positive about it.  i struggle everyday and feel like i am barely able to keep my head above the water.  I hope you raise alot of money with it for your little guy!

Oh I struggle too. It's been hard but I can't *not* do anything if that makes any sense at all? I have other things I'm sewing too that cost less, some key fobs with puzzle piece fabric and charms and zipper bags with that bright puzzle piece fabric as the liner and a silver puzzle pin on the outside. We have good insurance but we still owe 15-20% of total costs and the service dog is going to be a whopper of an expense. Its even just little things like my oldest has visual sensitivity and we go through sunglasses like crazy.

If you ever want to talk feel free to message me. Sometimes I feel very alone in what I feel is a constant battle.

That's a cool pattern, thanks for sharing it! I chose this because it's called Autism *Spectrum* Disorder, I hope it's not to obscure now that I think about it, I already have 2 more tops sewn together...

Thanks! I forgot to add it is 55" by 40" wide so it's pretty big. Each strip is 3" wide after SA. The binding is kona cotton solid black which I think adds a really nice contrast. The stripwork is top stitched to pure and natural cotton batting in a meandering pattern on the machine, the black binding is handstitched to the soft n' comfy green backing (I really dislike sewing with the stuff but it makes such a cozy blanket) I chose not to do a backing that had the topstitching all the way through because our ASD kids can have some pretty severe skin sensitivities and those stitches can be really annoying! Having the SnC backing gives it a uniform texture free of seams. It also lends a little weight to it which ASD kids also like.

Each of the blankets are similar but just like our kids on the spectrum, the colors are just a little different. Each also will have a different color backing, the next is blue Smiley
10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Autism Awareness quilts (ETA new pics) on: June 10, 2012 03:16:32 PM
I have two autistic boys (and three neuro-typical girls)  I think it's interesting that I created my first of these quilts (and at the time the only one) in April of 2009, just a few months after my youngest was born and almost 2 years before we started our Autism Journey. I love the spectrum in general, the flow of colors, the different emotions we can feel just by looking at colors.
