:laughing: Can't say I blame him, those blankets are awesome!
I should post the instructions here for anyone who likes to do crafts. They are easy to make and so warm and fuzzy.
If anyone is interested, here are the instructions~
Purchase 2 yds each of complimentary fleece, for instance a 2 yds of a print and 2 yds of a solid.
Put wrong sides together (right sides out).
Some fleece is 58", some is 60", so line up the selvedge edge. You may need to shake it out a bit and smooth it. Careful it has a tendancy to stretch. Square the edges up and pin the top and bottom pieces together. Put one or more pins in the center, then scatter more around, maybe 8 pins or so. Can use safety pins or straight pins. Pin at least 4" in from the edges.
If you need to trim the edges to make them the same, do it now while both pieces are together. Square the edges up, and trim with scissors or rotary blade.
Cut a 4" x 4" square out of each corner.
Cut fringe every inch making the cut 4" deep. My friend said you can also put masking tape four inches from edge, mark one inch increments on the tape, and cut that way. Apparently a rotary cutter is easiest.
Cut all 4 edges, then tie the fringes into a squareknot. The selvedge edges are strechier, and the fringes will stretch a bit, just be careful. When you are tieing the knots, be consistent with which fabric is 'on top' .
MA, I'm sooooooo glad you like it!
