Ways to create what I'm calling my "Freedom Fund"

Well the last few days or so, I've been wracking my brains on just how to make this "Freedom Fund" of mine a reality. Now I know I won't make it all this way but it can be a start.

With some (a lot of) encouragement from my friend Kat, you all know her as the Tameran Witch, we've talked a bit about this...and I will most likely be crocheting up some shawls. I'm still looking for the simplest pattern I can find as I'm sort of rusty at the moment. (not that I was a pro to begin with mind you :D). I was also thinking about making some 'dream' pillows or something along those lines. I have plenty of cloth and like 3 decent size bags of fiber fill. I even have some quilt batting. I had seen a pattern not long ago where you take quilt squares and cut them into pie quarters and then sew them together (one color for each element). Now for the life of me I can't find the darn thing. But my thought was to maybe whip up a couple of those and possibly cushion them with the quilt batting.

I've also proposed to my wee one who has a knack for making some jewelry that if she'd like to make a few bucks, I'd be willing to put up some of her things if she wants. She seemed to like that idea.

I need to dig around and pull out my BAGS of yarn and see what I have on hand to work with. And maybe we can snag a trip to Hobby Lobby and/or Michael's so she can pick up some supplies and I might be able to find some other ideas.

I can't sit by and wait for something to happen. I have to make it happen.
