Every year, our family participates in Operation Christmas Child. It is a program that sends shoe boxes filled with toys, school supplies, toiletries and other gifts to kids living in poverty around the world. I am always on the lookout for things to fill our shoe boxes, and the other night my daughter and I decided to make a simple flannel blanket. There is obviously not a ton of room in a shoe box, but I always try to put something soft and snuggly in each box. We embellished it with a yard sale find crocheted flower, and some zigzagged topstitching. I think we will be making many more of these!
