seriously, anyone can make these blankets. no sewing experience or “crafty genes” needed. all you need is a couple of hours & some fleece (which just happens to be 50% off at joann’s right now), & you’ve got yourself a blanket. perfect for gifting away, although there’s nothing wrong with hording it for yourself! i made several of these a couple years ago for christmas & they were huge hits, i promise! if you like, you can even get fancy… use the “minky” like fabric they sell at joann’s for one of the sides. so if you’re looking for a slightly last minute gift, or have someone who already “has everything” on your list, make them a blanket. there’s absolutely no sewing invovled. (how can you beat that?) they are so easy, you’ll want to make more. for directions, go HERE.
