I got home so excited to start making panels for the Family Room but there was no way I was going to be able to do anything before the blankets were done. So I spent that evening making 2 blankets (2 mom points for me).
Blanket #1. Double-layer fleece blanket. I purchased 1 1/2 yards of each color, lined them up and stitched up 3 sides and most of the 4th side, leaving a 5 inch opening. There is no need to put right sides together with fleece because both sides are 'finished'. I flipped the blanket inside-out, pushed out the corners, and hand stitched the 5 inch opening. The 1 1/2 yards makes a blanket that is close to the size of a throw.
Blanket #2. Small snuggle blanket. I got 1/2 yard of the pink faux-fur. For this blanket, I just folded it in half with finished sides together. I stitched the remaining 3 sides leaving a 3 inch opening. Once again I flipped the blanket inside-out, pushed out the corners and hand stitched the 3 inch opening closed.
Not sure if its obvious, but both girls LOVE their blankets.
