I would like to thank Mdm Samm for the inspiration and to Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy for being our head cheerleader. Please be aware that Amy has added more bloggers and days to the Hop which now runs to November 15th. Please be sure to visit these lovely ladies that I share my day with:
I first thought of my 'little boys' - those grandies who know how to wrap NaNa around their little fingers
Hmm, what could be rolled up in these? I used this Tutorial
to make some crayon roll-ups. Who doesn't like to play with crayons? I have a special box to use with my stitchery work. But I think my guys will prefer these.
One of my little boys loves trains (I only have trucks to play with at my house) and I happened to have a panel on the shelf. Panels are fun and make for a quick quilt. That bundle of colorful stripe FQs I keep on the other shelf joined in the play.
Some cuddle fabric for the back and an all over meander - wash and dry for that crinkly goodness and a bright 'drag-around' size quilt is waiting to get wrapped for Christmas.
But I have a lot of Big Boys in my family and this is a popular gift. Eye glass cases made with my tutorial found HERE.
And some tissue boxes that are on the manly side using my Tutorial.
Yes, there has to be a Big Boy quilt, too. This is the third quilt I have managed out of that box of de-constructed men's flannel shirts from my guys - there might be enough for one more. 8.5" unfinished squares with 4.5" unfinished squares on two sides gives you a 12.5" unfinished block to play with any layout. With borders this one finishes at 60" x 72"
Need a nice Big Boy gift set? I bought a flannel sheet set - came in that nice flannel covered zip-box. I used the flat sheet for the back of the quilt - always wash your flannel first as it does shrink. Now I have the fitted sheet, pillowcases, and that cool box to tuck them in - along with the quilt - for a complete gift set.
Thank you for visiting and hope I gave some inspiration for little and big boy gifts with the pending season. As a give away I have:
1 yard cuts of two Robert Kaufman "Illustration Ink - Super Hero". I will ship international - be sure I have a way to contact you. Comments close on Nov 15 and winner will be announced and contacted on the 16th.
