I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately and not much in the way of “creating”. The other day I was thinking about all the animal hair on my throw blankets. I love my animals, but I hate all the shedding! I’ve made the dogs each a blanket for their beds, and they do appreciate them, but then so do the cats. That’s when I decided I needed to make a couple more small blankets to lay on the bed and or couch to hopefully to keep the cats and dogs off mine!
I had an opportunity to make a quick trip to JoAnn’s the other day and found a remnant of fleece that I knew would be perfect for my small project. I snatched it up for only $1.55 w/tax! What a deal for .583 yds.
Here is what I made. I cut 8 – 10″ squares of the print and 8 – 10″ squares of black fleece I had on hand. I sewed them together making a 38″ square. I then cut another piece of black fleece into a 38″ square. With right sides together I stitched all around leaving an opening to turn. After I clipped the corners and turned it right side out, I stitched it again about an 1″ in from the edge all the way around. The finished blanket is a 36″ square.
A nice quick project that was also inexpensive and well appreciated by my pets. Happy sewing!
