I’m a bit of a blanket sceptic.
Don’t get me wrong, I love owning them, and frequently give Woolworths vast amounts of money for their beautiful blankets, but as more making them… weeeeelll…
A healthy dose of optimism and misguided craftiness means I’ve started no less than three blankets (with another 2 in the works) … but I never seem to get around to actually FINISHING them. So whenever I think ‘I should make my pregnant friend a blanket!’ a part of me says:
BUT I THINK I FOUND MY SOLUTION!
But not quilting. Oh no. The simplest sewing in the world! And when I found an adorable bunny fleece in the colours of my friend’s nursery, I couldn’t resist. I bought it. And now I’m going to sew a fleece blanket LIKE THIS helpful video shows (except mine will have two sides of fleece. Is that OK?? This is a whole new world to me!)
