A Snugglie Quilt

Hello Friends, I want to share with you a snugglie quilt I made.  Well I made two of them, one for each of my boys to go on their beds.

As you have probably caught on if you have followed my blog for a bit.  I love finding uses for used, scavenged, free things.  The Lord always seems to bless us with things that we can use or re-purpose.   I happen to have a friend that finds LOTS of things for me and smuggles them in to the house.  I have a husband that likes to have more things leave the  house than come in...but that's just not as fun. LOL  I'm not a junk collector though, I just love things that can be given a practical use.  If they have no use, they leave quickly.

So with that in friend brought me over on separate occasions a couple flannel leaf sheets and a couple cloth table cloths.  So what else would pop into my head but matching quilts for the boys.  Here in the Yukon it's good to have lots of warm blankets.

I found a sheet of quilting batting at the free store (recycling section) of our dump so that went for one quilt and then I purchased a king sized quilting batting and doubled it up for extra warmth on the second.  I didn't do anything fancy, just sewed some...fairly straight lines and then made some binding out of the extra pieces of the flannel sheets.

I could hardly get them finished before the boys were snuggling into them.  I'm so glad they like them and that they'll keep them warm on cold Yukon nights.

Do you love finding ways to use things that are given you or that you find? 

Thanks so much for dropping by!  I hope you have a delightful day!

I love blankets of any kind and these look wonderful! I especially love that they are "scavenged"!

Hello, What a good idea and being frugal and beautiful is wonderful. I love having blankets in every room to snuggle with! The ones you made are just perfect for your boys, and great that you doubled the batting for extra warmth. Hope you are doing well! Sending a hug via internet!!

I love blankets and quilts and collect them. I also enjoy making quilts from fabrics I get for free or cheap or leftover scraps from other sewing projects.
I love these quilts. They look very comfy.
