You know what happens when a person like me can't sleep?
They come up with really horrifying sewing projects that will undoubtedly (and unfortunately) wind up as a school grab bag present.
Thanks to insomnia, some poor kid will have to deal with ...
THE SNIFFLE PILLOW & BLANKETCHIEF SET
Basically it's a pocket tissue pack cover and a double-sided blanket made with flannel scraps.
To make the pillow cover:
*Cut two pieces of fabric, the exterior side is 5 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches and the lining will be 5 1/2 by 7 1/2 inches.
*Sandwich the fabrics right sides facing each other, ends meeting. Sew first side.
*Adjust the opposite ends so they meet. Sew second side.
*Turn right sides out and press flat so that the lining leaves a 1/4 inch of border on either side.
*Turn lining side out, fold so that borders meet. Sew raw ends closed.
Turn right side out. Stuff with pocket pack.
To make the blanketchief:
*Cut two pieces of fabric the same size. (I used 8 x10)
*Sandwich right sides together.
*Sew around all four sides, leaving a three-inch gap to turn blanket right side out.
*Close end and sew 1/4 border all the way around the blanket to finish.
I'm fairly certain there is a reason this toy has never been invented before.
Smart adults usually discourage children from playing with phlegm.
