    Cuddly Critter Quilts

    They are made from minky, so they are extra soft for babies.

    I also donate to organizations who help babies and families in need. Let me know if you know of a place that would like some donated. Thanks!

    I made a couple of these for some special children and one for a dog I had. They were fun to make and enjoy. Bonnie (the dog) would lay her head on it and carried it everywhere. I think she got more use out of hers than the kids did.

    that's very generous of you to donate some of those. I donate to Project Linus, so you might want to add them to your list. By the way, I made only one of those as a gift. They are absolutely adorable, but a lot of work to do that puppy with it. Good job to you!

    MaryMo -- That made me laugh but I get it as my cats love to sneak into my quilting closet to cuddle into the finished quilts as well as the fabric!

    Thanks all for the nice comments and great suggestions!

    This is adorable! I'm sure they sell fast and at a good price. I sew quilts all the time for Crisis Pregnancy Centers. I'm sure there is one close to you. They help women who have troubled, inconvenient pregnancies. Most of the mothers do not release for adoption so there is need for baby items.

    Your critters and quilts are so cute! There is such a need for such projects. Our quilt guild works with the police and social services in our county and the need for them never ceases. They are given away as fast as they are made. So, keep sewing, your projects are wonderful.

    So adorable. I would have loved to have such a cute & soft cuddly to help me fall asleep when I was small. I bet the children who have these treasure them.

    I do things for the pregnancy center close to me. Maybe you could donate some to one close to you.
