I found a tutorial (with video clip!) on Beverly's which I am guessing is similar to Spotlight here, and I decided I'd cut up the non-wearable pyjamas (some had tops missing, some had lost their elastic, others had holes or missing buttons) and make them into a rag quilt big enough to keep Elijah warm while watching TV during those cold wintery days.
The whole process was really simple and I guess that's why it had been rated a beginners project. I spent two afternoons and one night working on this but remember I have a 3 year old to tend to whilst sewing. It could get quite tedious if you decided to make a larger blanket but then I would recommend using larger squares (you'd probably want to buy new fabric) as the squares I used were approx 17cmx17cm so fairly small. This quilt is just big enough to cover my legs and because it's flannelette it's quite soft. I imagine if you used new fabric it would be alot nicer.
I don't own a drier so I think this might take quite a few washes before it stops shedding! I don't mind though because Elijah is excited just to be getting a 'present'.
