Featured in the PR book!
During the year I've been cuting the rests of fabric that are not enough to do a complete cloth in pieces of 5" width any large.
I've choose similar fabric and coordinate colors to make some patchwork blankets to give as a gift to people could need.
and I've used the other that doesn't have any similar kind of fabric or color to do blankets for a place where the animals that don't have owner are. (sorry, I donīt know the word in English).
(I feel I've used all the fabric I bought well. ;))

Great idea - I have tons of scraps I don't know what to do with. There are dog and cat blanket/coat patterns (some reviewed on PR too)- I'd bet you could piece enough fabric together to cut one out.

Thanks Girls, In reference to the final size, I try to made larger than 48 x 32", but If there are some shorter, It doesnīt matter because in the animal shelter are many cats or little dogs, and They really appreciate any kind of help as little it be.

Hello Iris, you have a very warm heart. I'm also sending old blankets and such stuff to animal shelter, they really need that stuff.

Iris, what a wonderful idea! I've got a pile of scraps that I won't throw out because I hate to waste them. How large do you make your animal blankets?

I know of some animal shelters that could do with blankets if anyone needs somewhere to send them.

Hi Iris, it's called an animal shelter. They usually don't have a lot of money to buy things for the animals, so I'm sure they appreciated your work. I've thought about doing patchwork too. I save my fabric scraps but I never know what to do with them.
