Comfort Blanket Project

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I have been on here, but I am back and am so excited about a current project that I am working on, however, for this project to be a success, I need your help.

As many of us know from our own childhood and/or from being parents, children love their blankies. My son is about to be eight years old, and he still carries around his favorite Spider-Man blankie. There is just something about a blanket that brings comfort to many. For that reason, I am partnering with my sewing sister ElleRussSew to start the Comfort Blanket Project.

THE PLAN

I am asking my fellow sewers and non-sewers to sew or create no sew blankets to donate to the children at the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta. I need at least 100 blankets no larger than 2 yards by December 10, 2017. However, you can continue sending blankets through February 5, 2018, because I would like to donate the remainder of the blankets to the Pregnancy Resource Center.

INSTRUCTIONS

The blankets must be made of fleece and be brand new (no old blankets due to the health of the children). You can sew your own blanket or no sew blanket, but please make sure that the fabric is precleaned with odorless detergent. The blankets can be solid or print, as long as it is unisex. Here is a quick tutorial on how to make a sewn or no-sew fleece blanket. Once you have completed your blankets please write a short inspiring note to go with your blanket and mail it to the address below.

  1. Hello! I follow you on IG and made a comment there yesterday. I used to live in Atlanta but came back home to the DMV a while back. I’d love to participate. I know ElleRussew (met her about 2.5 years ago at a meet up that she used to oversee).

    1. I would love for you to participate. Elle has such a wonderful heart, and I am so happy to be partnering with her in this. This project is near and dear to my heart because no matter where life takes me, I always end up around kids. I serve in the children’s ministry at my church as well as have volunteered with children in other capacities. I wanted to start this project and other projects that I have in mind because I feel that when we have a gift, we can use it to bless others in some way. If you have any further questions, just let me know.
