As regular readers of this blog know, our house has been sick a LOT lately! I cut up an old pair of flannel pajamas into square-ish shapes, serged the edges (a zig-zag stitch prevents fraying on a regular sewing machine, or you could always get fancy and hem them), and created instant cloth Kleenex (also known as handkerchiefs, although these are hardly sophisticated enough to warrant that title in my mind!)
Turns out, flannel is much softer for noses than even the softest disposable tissue! Emma actually refuses to use the store-bought version now! I made some out of new flannel, also, but the worn-out flannel is nicest, not to mention free!
These are single-use before being run through the washing machine on a sanitize cycle, so you’ll want to make dozens. But any flannel works, so buy cute prints from the fabric store or use old shirts, PJs, or even sheets!
