In my children's rooms I have drawers and boxes full of receiving blankets from when they were babies. Most of them were made for my babies and I just can't bear to let them go. Emily at Eat, Pray, Love and Craft had a similar dilemma. Rather than throw them out or give them away, she cut them up and turned them into a beautiful rag quilt. Now, the memories are still intact but there is only one blanket instead of 20! I love it! See how she did it at Eat, Pray, Love and Craft.
