pattern ideas and the like

if you are on board, and want to help, i figured there are three categories we can work on:

1. cloth diapers
2. blankies
3. soft toys/softies

here's a site i found with free patterns for softies. oh my gosh, i love the platypus.

for cloth diapers, it appears there are quite a few different types. here's a site that shows you how to make fitted cloth diapers out of old shirts and stuff. i'm sure you could probably just sew rectangles out of absorbent material, too, if you don't want to bother with all the other steps.

here's a pattern for a soft stuffed ball. these would be easy to whip out using fabric scraps (of which i personally have a TON).

as for blankets, i don't even think we would need a pattern for that.

Jenn, I haven't been here in forever! For some reason, this blog is not in my list I check regularly, I'm going to fix that. You've been busy! I love all the quilts you've been making, especially the first one, ahhhh! I just love it. Love Malcom's too. I would like to make stuff for your craft hope like project, I will try to set aside time to do that, but I am very overwhelmed right now with homeschooling starting on TUESDAY (aghhhhhh!!!) and some other stuff on the horizon. I'll need to get it to you by September 15th? I'll do what I can, hope you have a big turn out for stuff! Hearing about all those abandoned babies makes me want to hop on the plane and bring one home, wish it was that easy.
