I know it sounds ridiculous, but now that our daughter only wants to wear store-bought jeans and T-shirts, I’m having a bit of an identity crisis. When school is back in session, I won’t be the mom who sews cute dresses with matching hair bows.
DIY memory quilts are very snuggly and warm. Because the clothing squares were all cut from well-loved nighties and sweaters, they’re also super soft.
For less than $20 in fabric and upholstery tacks — and about 30 minutes of sewing, cutting and hammering — she had what looked like a brand-new ottoman.
I’m really happy with my new DIY weighted blanket quilt. It looks great tossed over the couch and feels so much nicer to snuggle up with.
The easy quilt squares are a fun way to use up tiny fabric scraps that would have otherwise ended up in the garbage!
