Wow! My custom stuffies have become my second most popular item!
Here is one I made last week. Like it? You can get your own in my Etsy store Daisy May Days
If you are like me you have lots of old Christmas towels, table cloths, napkins and other cloth items that have nostalgic value but no longer go well with your current decor or are just worn or stained from years of loving use. Have you considered creating a memory quilt with those items? Most people think of memory quilts as made of old clothing from a loved one but there are many different kinds of memory quilts. Some ideas would be to make place mats, table runners, decorative wall tapestries, or cheery holiday throw to wrap up in on a chilly night.
If you try this send me a pic! I love seeing others creative ideas.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
