Kris, don't worry about the craftiness LOL!
I have a friend who does this for her family at big occasions.... she calls it quilt scrapbooking. She's had meaningful pictures.. stuff from magazines, the internet, old family photos etc, copied and put on iron on transfers, used bubble fabric paint and all sorts of cool non-sewing stuff that she finds at the big hobby stores. She's got a room full of paint and fabric glue and trim and tiny dolls accessories and buttons and lace and..................... I knitted tiny mittens for her that she wanted to put on some "skiing holiday" square she was doing for someone! That's a little OTT but I'm sure that you'll have no trouble coming up with a plan!!!
