Repurpose Receiving Blankets
They are usually made from a nice heavy flannel, and come in such cute patterns… Disney characters, cartoons, etc. So once you are are done using them to ‘swaddle’ or as light throws, repurpose them by making nice flannel pillowcases. It is so easy, just fold them in half and sew.
My children Loved their pillowcases they used them forever. In the warm months, they would wick the sweat from your brow, and in the cold months they were warm. My children used them up to and all the way through College. They used them at home, and traveling, at summer camp, they even took them to their dorm rooms. Some were even used by the grandkids. The cartoon style ones were loved the most. Flintstones, Pebbles & Bam Bam, the Jetsons, Yogi Bear & Boo Boo, Pooh Bear, etc. I still have, 3 left home here, 1 Yogi Bear and 2 miscellaneous. I use them occasionally. 🙂
These are the last of the pillowcases made from the receiving blankets. Not the best pictures, but what do you want for being almost 40. Plus they became softer and softer through the years. 😀
What are some of you quick repurposing ideas?
Take Care, Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you join me on my journey, as I recount many things from my past, and explore the many other creative possibilities in my future. – OmaEagle
