This month we decided to use our work days to make blankets for the JOPPA homeless ministry. We had 10 people sewing both on Friday and Saturday. It was a great weekend to stay inside and sew given the bitterly cold weather, especially for such a good cause.
Here are a few of our creations. Beside denim we used anything heavy we had available. Corduroy, upholstery fabric and some broadcloth gave the denim a little more interest. With a fleece back these became very heavy and durable blankets.
