    I've only made 4 so far. I goofed by buying directional fabric (princesses). It runs in the wrong direction and I didn't have enough yardage to cut it so they would run the correct way. I went ahead and made them anyway, and don't know WHAT I was thinking.
    Also you'll notice that only two of them use 3 fabrics. I didn't like the thick seam where all 3 fabrics intersect.
    I hope the recepients like them anyway.

    So adorable. Don't worry about the way the fabric read, kids will love them whatever way the fabric lays. May in Jersey

    Thanks everyone for the compliments. I hope to make a lot more and am going to try to encourage the ladies in our sewing group to join in as well. I think this is a very worthy cause and they sew up so quickly. I used the tube method that was described on an earlier thread. Sooo easy! ;-)

    I have a friend who likes the directional prints to go one way and I like them the other way. So what you did isn't "wrong", it's just a matter of personal preference. Very glad you finished them anyway. :)
