WIP Wednesday

Last night I *almost* finished my Always and Forever quilt top.
The only thing left is to cut and sew the outside border.
I could have finished it, but alas, another project drew me in.

I may have mentioned to my son that I came across a link for stuffed animal sleeping bags while I was on Pinterest the other day.

And he may have gotten a pillow pet for christmas this year.
And that pillow pet may or may not be named Sammy G (he wanted to name him something "awesome" so went with Sam, after his sister Samantha, who wasn't too impressed with the idea of another Sam in the house, so we then added the "G" for giraffe.). Right now, Sammy G has a fever and really needs a sleeping bag to keep him warm. Or so I was told.
Lucky for Sammy G, I have quite a bit of leftover fabric from Nick's Streak of Lightening quilt.

Now, I don't mind spending money on a pattern if I need to, but I draw the line at doing it just so I don't have to do the math. So, last night, (while watching Glee! <I can't believe Rachel said yes!>) I designed Sammy G's sleeping bag. Tomorrow, I will measure him and adjust my block size accordingly.
I really hope Sammy G is feeling better soon, but just in case he isn't, I better get that sleeping bag done. I wouldn't want him to be cold!

You know, of course, this is the start of a vicious trend. All 4 kids got pillow pet's for christmas.
And 2 of them have already suggested that they also need sleeping bags.
I'll keep you updated.

Noooooooo!! Now Amelia is going to want sleeping bags for her animals! but what a super idea! Looks easy enough. I may have to make one or two for her favorite stuffed pals. It can't be THAT hard.
