Some of Daughter #2’s friends turn a year older soon, so we thought fleece blankets would make cuddly gifts. They can be left in the car to be available for soccer games and picnics or brought inside for use while TV watching and studying. Their high school colors are blue and white, so we chose fleece with some blue for the top layer.
For the bottom layer, which wraps around to make the binding, we went with the usual heather gray for its ability to camouflage lint.
These double-layered fleece blankets are easy to sew, wear like iron and are extra warm. I love when I get these mitered corners right–it’s so much easier with fleece than cotton! You can read how I make these blankets here.
