Weekend Project: Fabric Scraps and Fireworks

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.

~Abraham Lincoln

Happy (American) Independence Day! Our house was full of people to celebrate, and I accidentally discovered a wonderful way to use up your fabric scraps. All it requires is a couple of 8-year old girls and about 5 pounds of fiberfil! Mix thoroughly with a sewing machine and... voila!

Pillows! Lots and lots of pillows! (Note: a key component of this plan involves sending the pillows home with the girls at the end of the day!)

And here we are enjoying the fireworks from the best seat in the house:

I hope you and your family had a wonderful weekend! :)
