My husband was heading to Florida for a "Guys Trip" in early December so I knew I had to get those ones done first and quick! I was running out of time to plan for shipping for the Florida girls so I went to Mook Fabrics in Medicine Hat and picked up some Tinkerbell flannel and some matching pinks, yellows, and greens. Due to time and fabric miscalculations, I make strip rag time quilts for them. I had the dark purple from some pajama pants I made for my niece so I used that in there too. Here's how they turned out:
THEN came the boys' projects. For them, I started shopping on my favourite website: fabric.com. I found the perfect flannel for all the boys. I had a lot of fun sewing the Rag Time Quilts for the boys. There are three boys (plus my son and daughter) in the family. I still have to do my son's quilt but I got the other boys' done in time for our family gathering. Here they are below:
All the squares cut up (lots of cutting!)
What do you think??
So after those were all finished, it was time for the next group of projects: Toy Poufs. Years ago, I made my son a cube out of canvas fabric and added a handle and a zipper to stuff in soft teddy bears and other stuffed animals. It helps with clutter and you end up getting a comfy cushion/seat out of it! This time, I decided on a smaller, hexagon version. I shopped - again - at fabric.com and got fabrics that match their rooms/favourite colours. The results are kind of hard to see in the photos but they work awesome. The best example would be in the purple one. You can see it a little more stuffed.

I have been told I should make a sell them. What do you think? I'd love to hear your feedback on the Rag Time Quilts and the Toy Poufs!
