Eco-Friendly Christmas Wrap

Okay, I tried folding and refolding but the I Spy quilts just would not fit into the boxes I had hoped to deliver them in so what to do? Make pillowcases that could double as wrapping paper! The girls love penguins and I bought this fabric last year because I thought it was cute. A perfect match.

Friday Nite Sew-In Results

I haven't blogged in almost a month and now 2 posts in 2 days. The reason for this is one, we had to reformat our computer and I had to reload some of the programs I had on it and just didn't take the time to do it and two, I was concentrating on finishing the I Spy quilts (see previous post). For the Sew-In last night I made the labels for the quilts but didn't get them stitched on yet as my fingers are a bit sore from sewing the binding down earlier in the day.

After I finished the labels I decided to continue working on the child's hat that I started knitting last week.

I Spy My Little Eye.....

On two finished quilts! These quilts are for my great nieces as a Christmas gift from their Mom and Dad. The girls share a room and have bunk beds so I thought making the quilts basically the same with a few subtle differences would be nice. I backed each quilt with flannelet to add to the "cozy factor." I plan on adding a label to the back of each of these quilts with their names and the date so they know whose quilt is whose.
