What to do with all of those clean wash cloths ......










Good afternoon Blogland Neighborhood ! Clean wash cloths ??? What clean wash cloths ?!?!??? Anyhow, isn't this hysterical ! This is a card by Tina Neidlein we found recently and it got us thinking about all those clean and fluffy towels and wash cloths (that don't stay clean and fluffy for very long...) and we remembered the MBIAJ Sewing Dept came up with a little project last winter , made from a wash cloth (rescued from the filthy clutches of the Moonbeams Boys and their cruddy cronies BEFORE they messed them up) and some fabric , that I don't think we ever showed you .....so now you have to .....well, not HAVE TO .... get to see the wash cloth project(s) (the Sewing Dept got carried away and made two...)



....here's the blue one and ....



.....this is the green version (just click on the pictures to make them bigger ).....













BUT WHAT ARE THEY ???? you ask .... well, these are ... (hold your horses Jan .... I'm gettin' to it!) .....








.......hot pack / cold pack covers !!!!

The Moonbeams Boys (and their mama) use cold packs and hot packs ALOT ..... this summer we've had sinus infections, earaches , bumps and boo boos from racing dirtbikes (them, not mama) , and now high school soccer practice is starting on Monday so we're prepared for the whining and complaining re: sore shins and ankles that are par for the course from Kid #2. So, not able to leave well enough alone, and being irked by the cold/ hot pack always falling out of the just folded wash cloth around the cold/ hot pack, the MBIAJ Sewing Dept put on their thinking caps and had to come up with a practical, yet decorated (which the Moonbeams Boys could really not give a _______ about) cover for the well used cold/ hot packs at MBIAJ Headquarters .......and , so there you have it ! Instructions soon to follow .... so gang .... rescue a wash cloth while it's still clean and dry and we'll put one of these babies together next blog post ..... (hopefully sooner rather than later!)

Stay tuned !!!

Be back soon!
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)
