One of the best ways to brighten up a kids bedroom is to make several cheap kids quilts. You can make an unusual children’s quilt very easily, you just have to know where to buy the fabric and materials.
Look at fabric shops and ask for scrap bags — bags of leftover material pieces. You can often buy huge bags for only a couple of dollars and, with only three or four bags, you’d have enough fabric to get started on making kids quilts.
Browse online at quilting websites. You’ll find some gorgeous patterns, which you can download and print out for free, without having to waste money on buying one.
