Sewing up the Stash

While packing some of my stuff up for the move, I did donate a lot of my fabric stash to a local church to quilt up for donations to various charities.

When I moved here one of the local knitting groups I attend was asking for blankets and knitted items.

As hubby was repacking and sorting the boxes in the garage, I found a bit some leftover fleece. I had only solids so a quick trip to the fabric store for a few yards to help complete them.

No pattern really, just cut the solids a little smaller than the prints.  I was going to cut and tie them, but figured out this self-binding was much easier and cheaper.
Cupcake blankie

Love this cupcake print!

I had used some of this yellow/gold fleece for a lion costume for my daughter years ago. 
So glad I found a print that looked pretty good with it.

They turned out a bit shorter than crib length. Perfect for use in car seats and strollers I think :)

Hoping the lucky wee ones enjoy them :)
Ready to go :)

Stay tuned for more sewing....
