Ok so I fully admit it--I'm a total blanket hog! My hubby has been wanting me to make him a blankie for him to keep on his side of the bed and I finally got around to doing it.
I've shared how I made my son a no-sew blanket, but I didn't want to have the ties on this one since he needed it to be as manly as possible!
I must say, I'm very pleased with how it turned out--I managed to make it pretty and manly at the same time, not always an easy task :)
His favorite colors are black and white so when I found this herringbone fleece at Joann's I knew it would be perfect. Annnnd they were having a huge sale so I got 2.5 yards for $10. Then I swung by Walmart which has solids for the same price, and picked up some black.
I laid them out with the more finished sides facing each other and the unfinished sides facing out.
To do this, I just fed the material through until I had a sack, and then shook it all out.
I think it turned out so beautifully :) I was going to trim the 1 inch hem off before turning it inside out but I forgot. Oops! Actually I like it because it helps hold the form around the edges. I'm always finding blessings in my "oops" haha...
If you can score a good deal on some minky fabric, you could follow the same steps and make a really cozy throw for the couch.
I am slightly obsessed with throws but totally picky about colors and designs so I may be doing this soon!
