Default I had so much fun making these for charity !

I started looking for panels, thanks to sewbizgirl's post: How cute is this panel?

to add to the totes I have been making for Sadie's Dream for a Cure. I found a couple on my bus trip to Kokomo, Indiana, including a panel that makes an open sided tote that houses a fabric "paper" doll and a complete wardrobe. It is called "Dream and a Wish" by Riley Blake Designs. I backed the clothes with Fusible Fleece to "stick" to the doll, which I sandwiched with Peltex and fusible fleece. I faced each half of the tote with fusible fleece and then put Soft and Stable in between both, rather than the recommended Peltex.

Here are the totes:
And the panels:


And the same panel sewbizgirl used:

and finally all rolled up and secured with velcro ties, along with the race cars and construction vehicles (3 per panel)

Fabric "paper" doll princess, with wardrobe pocket and bed pocket
Dream and a Wish by Riley Blake (open)

the closed tote

Hope they supply a bit of joy to the kids who have to undergo treatment for cancer, and give others a few ideas for their charities/families. Thanks again Bonnie for the idea! You fellow quilters are the best.

Wonderful job! These will surely bring some comfort. This is a local charity for me. I've helped cut some of the kits, so if you get one that's wonky, probably my fault...

Those are just darling. I am sure they will brighten the day for some lucky little ones that need a "bright spot". Thank you for sharing.!
