I haven't seen this kind of Kool-aid Jammer bags so I thought it'd post the ones I did. First one was for a swap and the other 2 were for other people.

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Cats love Twilight too on: February 21, 2010 03:25:27 PM
I made these in my very first swap. It was a cat lovers swap and I noticed my partner liked Twilight.

Made from felt and stuffed with stuffing and catnip.....

This was the first time I tried anything like this.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Glee Swap on: November 25, 2009 10:47:53 AM
I thought I'd throw this idea out there...can't seem to find much on the show. I love Glee...it's an awesome show and I' know I'm not the only one.

I'd have to leave the organizing up to someone else.....since i'm new and just started my first swap.
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / T-Shirt Quilt ~ help for a newbie on: August 11, 2009 09:44:22 AM
I'm a beginner to quilting...I haven't really made anything big so I need some tips and some advice. I liek to sew but don't do it alot....and it's usually half a$$ed without instructions. I LOVED sewing in high school and wish I did it more.

My 8 year son is a big video gamer and has a bunch of video game shirts with cute sayings. I'd love to make him a quilt that he'll love as a teen-ager. All the new shirts I've been getting for school are more video games shirts just so I can start this quilt as soon as he's done with them. I'd love to start it out as a twin size...but be able to add to it when he's a teen to make it a double....I can't do this in my mind but not sure if it can be done.

So if you have any thing you'd like to tell me before I start this project....please tell me.

I've been checking out other t-shirt blankets and almost everyone talks of a backing to stop the fabric from stretching.  Is this a must and what exactly should I look for when I go in to buy it. I remember using something in high school sewing class for collars in shirts but that might be different.

Since some of the shirts are smaller cuz he is a growing kid...which is the best way to use them. Like a shirt he was wearing yesterday was alot smalled then one of the new shirts I've bought him. Not only in size but the saying is smaller since it didn't cover the whole shirt. What is the best way to do this....make different size squares or use other fabris to make them the same?

I'm also thinking...while I wait for my son to out grow his shirts of making one for my boyfriend of 5 years. He loves Toronto Maple Leafs and has a bunch of shirts too...but doesn't wear them as much anymore.  I also thought of going to Value Village if I need a few more cuz they always have a bunch.

Thanks a head of time....I know how annoying this can be. I'm sure I'm not the only newbie that asked for help.
