Craft Idea: Need Feedback Please

Postby Plumeria » Mon May 31, 2010 3:10 pm

I got 8 yards of this fleece fabric for almost nothing. And, am not sure what to do with it. I am thinking of making those no sew hobo type bags to give out, but, not sure. Anyone have ideas? I know the fabric is a little on the childish side, but, the fleece is so soft! Maybe small pillows?

Yes, I know I don't HAVE to bring gifts, etc. But, I am looking for good feedback here! Thanks

I'm afraid the sight of teddy bears renders me pretty well completely non-creative. But there IS a kids' camp. Maybe something the kiddies would like, since they ARE teddy bears? So, small pillows or bags would probably be great gifts, then...

I say make little hats or blankets and donate it to your local NIC-U or woman's shelter.

I use a fleece blanket inbetween the air mattress and sheet, keeps one MUCH warmer at night. I just can't look at that pattern...

I also recommend hats. One year for ArtCar Fest we made fleece hats as trophies. They're eally easy, super cute and WARM!

Here's a few ideas I found from just doing a Google search:

http://kitschycoo.blogspot.com/2009/12/ ... h-ear.html

And of course Martha Stewart: http://www.marthastewart.com/article/fleece-hats

Then you could also make fleece leg or arm warmers:

And this thing is pretty cool looking:

But yeah...do add some evil Teddy if you can work it in. Maybe real glass eyeballs? The teeth are good too C.F.M. Is the drool considered MOOP though?

They are called bindles.
Will you also supply the sticks?
Maybe you could take a sharpie and add in stubble on the bears' chins, for that proper hobo look.

This is really smart, I do sleep on a fleece too but not usually on an airmattress... *brain fart*

Yeah you won't see the pattern in the dark ;)

Yep. 8.5 yards. Although, I am considering adult footed pjs! Or, my daughter may just make some blankets out of it for a service project.

Don't want the bears to kill anyone! hehe

Wear them with fangs and bloody eyes and teeth blacked out.


A friend of mine gave me the tip about using a blanet inbetween you and the air mattress. Keeps that cold air, in the mattress at night, from getting to you. Makes a HUGE difference! I just happened to have picked up a fleece blanket from the thrift store and tried it that night, worked like a charm.
