    Red face Tiny Quilts for stuffed animals

    This quilt was made from bonus blocks. Our guild makes these quilts for small animals to give policemen to have in there trunks to give out to children in stressful situations.

    Our guild also does this. Your critter quilt is so cute and this outreach is probably one of the most important things you can do with your quilting skills. A really loving outreach to children in need.

    How perfectly adorable! I know some stuffed animals that would like a wrap.

    How cute! I am sure the children will feel more security when they get something of their own that is soft and cuddly. Kudos to you.

    How sweet...and so important for little ones. I'm going to suggest this to our sew group. I have made kids quilts for our ambulance, but these little quilts and stuffies would be great for the police. Thank you for all you do and for passing on a great idea.

    Those are adorable, and a child could snuggle with one.

    One of our Grandsons is a Deputy Sheriff. I think they call in a social worker to take the kids.

    At each guild meeting, there is a table of stuffed animals, that are donated by members. That is where I found this cute snowman. Sometimes, I find great deals at the big box stores and $ stores. One member goes to the thrift store and finds cute and sometimes brand new stuffed animals for less than a dollar. We can wash them or put them in a hot dryer to sanitize the almost new ones. As you can see, I simplify the quilt by not making binding. These tiny quilts are great ways to practice your quilting so I hope you have fun making yours!

    I love the way it ties around the critter. My guild makes small bags, quilts and adds a critter to the bag for our local sheriff, fire and police department and also a group that serves as liason between the courts and kids who have been abused (physically or sexually). We give them to these groups twice a year. Good on you.

    But often the kids are removed from their homes without anything and the police give the bag, quilt and critter and ask them to look after the critter. It helps them to have something to hold on to during the process.
