The Project

3 Comments »



This is the project I have been working on for the past day. But as you can see, I had some help. That is my sister helping me knot the ends of the blanket. My dad is very sick in the hospital. I know what he has, but I can't say. But you can know that it isn't as serious as it may have been. What he has is very common now a days. He will live though (thank God!!!).
This project is very easy to do and kid friendly. No sewing needed. All you have to do is have two fleece fabrics ( the same size) one on top of the other. No need for ironing. Cut the edges 3 inches long and 1 inch wide, all the way around the whole blanket. Then knot the two strings (the one on top and one on bottom) together twice. That makes a double knot.

Give it to anyone. They'll love it.
My Grandma gave this idea to us a few years back. We all got one for Christmas, and everyone loved them. My mom has made one or two of them. This is my first one that I have made almost by myself. Everyone can help. In my situation, my sister, my brothers, and even thier friend helped too. I guess that just goes to show how much fun it is to make it.
