Flashy Scrap and Flannel Fred

I'm not a girly-girl, really I'm not.

But this remnant spoke to me, it said 'why doesn't anybody love me? why am I just tossed into the remnant basket without any love? Am I too flashy? too girly? too neon-y?' I feel for this fabric and its esteem issues. Her name is Flashy Scrap.

Because of her issues, she needs a special purpose, so I've had her hidden away for close to a year, finding her perfect purpose. I had to find her a companion, a partner to help it through her abandonment issues. So I found a therapist for Flashy Scrap, his name is Flannel Fred. He's a supersoft purple flannel that will help comfort Flashy Scrap through the future.

Flashy Scrap and Flannel Fred have agreed to their purpose. They are to become what I hope to call a "Rock or Roll Pad," it can be used as a washable changing pad or a soft playmat, perfect in bassinet as well. Rock or roll in that I have plans to have hook/eye fasteners in two places, one for the folding OCD type (like myself) and another for the rebel rollers who like variety.

I hope it turns out as well as I hope, if not, then they agree to live civilly together at least.
Welcome to Stitch and Giggles.

My place to share my ongoing journey of anything creative. I love trying any sort of new sewing project, whether it be a blanket, bag, child's clothing, accessories, whatever I find cute enough to attempt. Most of my projects are simply my interpretations of products, no patterns other than notes to myself.

This is my place to share the latest attempts, projects in progress, failures, and whathaveyou.
