scissor sisters

So here I am deciding what to do with this material I bought. I asked the woman at the counter, "What do most people make with flannel?" I wanted something different, something unique, not pajamas, not blankets, but all she said was "Kids pajamas, that's about it." BORING. Oh well. I bought it anyway.

So I bring the stuff home, and as I'm pinning it, I look down, and what do I see?

What the f*ck? Not like I was going to make them anyway, BUT WHAT IF I WAS? I mean, after all the counter woman recommended it to me, and she would know best cause she has scissors in her hand, and that's authority!

What would happen if I DID make pajamas? Would they strangle my child in his sleep? What kind of a world do we live in, if you can't make flannel pajamas out of Incredibles fabric?! I want answers, dammit!

Nah, I don't really care. I'm just going to make my blanket.

The fabric must be flammable. How ridiculous!

Holy crap. Flammable.
But then...what fabric isn't? And what the hell am I supposed to make with flammable fabric?

A torch perhaps?

BTW, the weathers been pretty nice here, I'll make sure it stays that way during your visit.

Excatly what I was thinking. I don't know of one fabric in the world that wouldn't turn into ashes if you lit it. Flammable Fabric is an oxymoron, like "government efficiency"

They make flannel specifically to make children's sleepwear. It is flame-resistant, not flame-proof. It is also not as soft as untreated flannel. I am in the process of making a flannel rag quilt like these
No batting! No complicated peicing! Just sew flannel, fringe and the pop it in the washer to make it unravel on the seams.
