Winter arrived and we need blankets! This is a project I did with my kids a couple years ago. These blankets have been super popular; I'm sure because the simplicity, softness & cuteness! The fabric stores are carrying TONS of fleece options at very affordable prices. If the fleece is not on sale at your fabric store please look for a coupon. Coupons are everywhere as well. You can print them out from online, download an app, or check your mail for coupon flyers. Coupons for fabric and craft stores save you a lot of money.
Items Needed For This Project:
- Fleece: 4-6 total yards. 2 yards will make a nice size throw or lap blanket. 3 yards is large enough to use on a twin size bed. You are tying two pieces together. Each piece should be the same size. Stores that carry lots of Fleece options: Joann Fabric, Hobby Lobby, Wal Mart or check your local Fabric Store.
- 3X5 card or ruler
We made the "Cat" blanket for my oldest daughter for her birthday this month. She loves All Things Cat. There are a bazillion different prints and colors to choose from. Go crazy and have fun!
