Christmas Gifts - Fleece Blankets
I generally sew Christmas gifts for my 9 grandchildren. Usually it's flannel or fleece pj's - they seem to like those. This year I decided to make fleece blankets. I made one for each of my grandchildren, plus one for my husband and a small one for myself. That's 48 yards of fleece! I'm probably the only crafter that had never made one of these or even owned one. Instead of the cut & tie method, I decided to stitch all the way around the edges and then cut the edges into 1-1/2" wide strips. I didn't tie them, just left them as fringe. I think the kids will like them and I'm thrilled that I got them finished early!
