In October, I had the brilliant idea to make fleece blankets for my nieces and nephews and our 3 kids for Christmas. Jo-Ann's had their fleece for 1/2 price, so I bought enough to make all 7 blankets. It was over two months until Christmas, so I had plenty of time to work on them.
Fast forward to the beginning of December...I haven't even started the blankets yet! My first blanket took me 2 1/2 hours because I'd never made one before. By the time I started blanket #4, I had it down to a science and it only took me 1 1/2 hours from start to finish. I finished my final blanket of the Christmas season on Sunday and wanted to post the end results. These blankets are super warm and comfy and have gotten rave reviews from the recipients.
