6. Cute Covered Magnets

7. Fabric Stickers

8. Reusable Coffee Sleeve

9. Funky CD Cases 

10. Ruffle Checkbook Covers

11. Tooth Fairy Pillows

12. Fabric Flowers

In the meantime you're trying to decide what to make with all those discarded hospital gowns, here's some images of encouragement if you're presently nursing an illness or an injury. Remember, doctors keep Death at bay for us. So, be nice to your nurses, they will put in a good word for you with the doc, who might actually end up taking time to read your chart!
