Or you could offer some up for sale here on the board... I'm sure some of the ladies making quilts for Project Linus would buy some. Even receiving blankets for pre-mature babies or even regular newborns. Just a thought.=-D

You can use the flannel for quilt backings. Help use up that yardage! And it is great to snuggle under!

Dear Sue in Plymouth, CA I did not buy all 500 bolts, just 199 yards! Thank you all for the terrific suggestions. I believe I will make some into quilts for the children's oncology dept at San Digeo's Rady Children's Hospital. I also know several young moms at my church who could probably use some pajamas and shirts for the little ones. I need a new robe and I love flannel shirts. Also, I love the idea of lining quilts with flannel. Whew, I need get to work. Again, I love the ideas, I was just overwhelmed with the volumn of fabric I bought. I will probably have some left over and i will offer it up to the wonderful folks on this board. It's really pretty flannel. Thanks again.

This is a great idea for Christmas gifts for my dear friends. I will look for the magazine. If I cannot find it I might ask you for the article. I'll look tomorrow. Thanks again and have a super week!

Article and instructions under "Chenille Chic"

I really like this idea because I just got all new windows and the kitchen windows are in need of valances, I have the perfect print for this little project! I would never have thought of this. I am going to try making myself a cute flannel shirt. Have not sewn for myself for many years. Thanks a bunch.

I made a nice flannel and Jean rag bag, its one of my favorite, flannel is also a great quilt backing. Slippers. Book cover would be nice. Oh the possibilities with so much flannel.

If you run out of ideas - just send some my way (LOL); I'm making things for a new grandbaby due in 2012.

You can make lots and lots of PJ bottoms and wear them everywhere you go like the teenagers do.
