I saw a tweet last week about the Cincinnati Chapter of Project Linus aiming to collect 1000 blankets to ship to Haiti. I love this idea b/c my kids can be involved, my Mom, sister and niece can help...and just like I had hoped, everyone got on board. So Saturday, we have plans to meet at my niece's apartment for snacks, drinks and Sugar cupcakes while also making 6 or so blankets.Yesterday, I went and bought the fabric. The plan is for at least 4 fleece blankets, single ply according to their specs. And I bought fabric to make two flannel blankets as well. I figured I could whip those up early as the others are no sew.
stitches were wonky which I did not realize until I had done two sides. So...after a quick Google search, I realized using the zig zag stitch would be a better choice for flannel. I ripped out the first two hemmed sides and began again.
finishing off fleece blankets. Who knew so many variations on one theme existed?
The best part is how super excited my kids are. They love the fabric. They love that I sewed the first one. They cannot wait to help on the next blankets. Olivia asked specifically WHO would be doing the delivery of the blankets and was thrilled that she is included. A totally feel good project all.the.way.around. Pin It
