This year for Christmas I have decided to do mostly handmade gifts for family and friends. First on my list was this football blanket from Thriving Home for my son. His room is done in a football theme so this was perfect.
What you will need to make one like mine:
2 yards brown fleece fabric
2 yards designed fleece fabric
1/2 yard white fleece fabric
I made mine basically the same way she did however mine is much bigger.
When I was down at Hancock Fabric the other day they were having a huge sale on fleece so that is what I decided to make his out of. You can save another 10% with them if you sign up for their text messages and you can combine that with their sale. They also accept competitors coupons.
This blanket was super easy to make. I finished it in 2 nights without any problems.
I think he is going to love it.
Cost of this project:
2 yards brown fleece $7.18 ($3.99 a yard, minus my 10% off text)
2 yards football fleece $10.78 ($5.99 a yard, minus my10% off text)
1/2 white fabric $1.79 ($3.99 a yard, minus my 10% off text)
Thread, straight pins and sewing machine I already had.
For less than $20 this is a really nice blanket. It's thick and warm. I'm sure he will have it for years to come.
