    Made a couple of quilted rain jackets for little 2 yr old girl, whom fell into campfire, and needed
    a jacket to wear in the rainy city when she had to go have more procedures. One is lined with quilted cotton, and the other is lined with quilted minky fabric. She is doing well, and a very happy little person, coping with her situation very well, and young enough that she is healing very well.

    I hope the little one heals quickly inside and out. The jackets are adorable and you deserve a big hug for making them.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    Great looking jackets! I can't imagine the pain from burns like that, your jackets will be a hit! My daughter fell into a fire pit while camping also. Hers were not deep burns, she was walking backwards and went in on her bottom. Nylon bathing suit melted into her burnt skin ! She was fortunate that is wasn't more severe. Prayers to your little friend!

    Prayers for the little one. We went thru burned feet when our 2 1/2 year old DGS walked on coals. It was so amazing how fast he healed and at age 20 has no memory of the ordeal. Grandma sure does. We were very fortunate that he did not fall into the fire. He said it was because Granda Mary held his hand( my mother had died 6 years before he was born)

    Those jackets are adorable and will be so useful. We'll be sending up prayers for healing and comfort for that special little lady.
