A Pack-Along Interactive Quilt

This little pack-along quilt was made for interactive play!


Kid-Tested, too!  It kept this sweet little three-year-old entertained, even before the binding was stitched down!


The flap is actually a pocket to store all the pieces.


Here's how to make a pocket/flap for a small pack-along quilt:

Chenille Applique'

Chenille Applique
I remember sleeping under a chenille bedspread at my Grandma's house.  Soft, fuzzy caterpillar-like channels were stitched into a design on the blanket.  And interestingly enough, "chenille" is actually the French word for "caterpillar." 

Chenille Applique

Here's how to make bias chenille strips, then use them to appliqué a design and  finish the edges (it's one of those "Alternate Endings") for this sweet little pillow.  You'll be amazed at how EASY it is from start to finish!  Just takes a few supplies, and a little (ok, maybe a lot) of elbow grease!
