{'Tis the Season to be Jolly}

Am I the last person in America to attempt a fleece tie blanket? I think I might be.

My first time in and I made six of them. Turns out, it was a fairly easy, fun project.




Each blanket is double sided (for extra warmth and cuddliness) and close to the size of a
twin bed (2 1/2 yards of each fabric). They should make good holiday gifts for some cute
kiddos we know.








Schlepping around 12 blots of material and waiting to have each one cut into two and a half
yard pieces of fabric was the hardest part, if there was one. Thankfully, I had help when I
got home and started putting the blankets together. Aren't they the cutest assistants?






Animal hair included. Sigh.
Fa-la-la, la-la la, la-la-la ...
