Okay, maybe not quite one million.... but a bunch!
Joanns is selling flannel for $1.49/yard on Black Friday, so I'm trying to think of as many uses for it as possible! I haven't used flannel much, and when I have it's been for pajama pants... so a bit of 'outside the box' thinking was much needed.
Here are some things I've come up with thus far...
Rag quilts- here's a helpful tutorial from Knit and Tonic. I'm really loving this rag quilt from Debbie Mitchell.
Pajamas (obviously)- Lots of people will be getting these =). To make them a bit more original, you could have the main fabric in a print, and the bottom in a solid with ribbon trim between the two.
Throw pillows- Cozy bed pillows. Embellish them to make them even cuter. Or make huge floor pillows. You can find a HUGE list of pillow tuts at thedomesticdiva blog.
Receiving blankets- I love this tutorial from Observations of an every day mom.
Baby toys- A vast array of soft baby goodness can be made. Here are some tutorials, just to name a few- baby blocks, fabric beach balls, and a little bunny.
Boo boo hot/cold rice packs- Simple tutorial here.
Burp cloths- Here's a tut from Homemade by Jill. I'm really loving the rag edge =)
Scarves- You could make a rag scarf, similar to the one seen on Sandi Henderson where she displays Flannel Ginger Blossom fabric. Use the rag quilt tutorial above. Or you could go with something more traditional.
Reading companion- Part bookmark, part glasses case. Visit marmadaisy to find out how.
If I find anything else that really jumps out at me, I'll update this. Hope you guys enjoy shopping and sewing!!
