Wordless Wednesday: Crafting Blankets

It is not a surprise that I have been crafting a lot lately. But really it helps for stress relief, and I get home late most days so it is way too late to go to the gym.

During the Holidays, I was ambitious and made three fleece no-sew tie blankets.  I made two for a friend’s sons and one for my friend Kristin. I’ve been shopping for the perfect fleece cupcake pattern for months. When I saw this blue cupcake fabric, I had to buy it.

Cupcake Fleece No Sew Tie Blanket

My mom is difficult to buy for, and I know she likes my son’s fleece blanket, so I decided to make her one also. Her birthday was on Monday and this was her birthday present. Angry Kid picked out the fabric. If you’ve met my mom, you would understand the fabric.

Late Night Crafting. I just finished a birthday present for my mom. She covets my son's fleece tie blanket. I made her one tonight. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift. No more crafts for a few days.

i have always wanted to make one of these and just never gotten around to it. i have also always associated them with being a baby's blanket. but i love that animal print and would SO use that myself. i may even be making these for family christmas gifts next year. thanks!

Those are by far my favorite blankets to make... maybe it has something to do with the fact that they don't need a sewing machine.. me and the sewing machine are not friends. haha. happy wednesday julieeeeee xo

Seriously, I might have bought some extra cupcake fleece. It is super hard to find cute stuff.

Totally not baby blankets. My 6 year old is obsessed with his pirate one. And the Hello Kitty one that I made in the spring is always kept in the back of my Tahoe. It is great to pull out when we are at sporting events, etc.

I have no time either. Maybe that is why I'm always up really late doing stuff like this.

LOL, you and the sewing machine are not friends. At least you are friends with your camera.

They are super easy to make, just a little time consuming. I think you should put that on your 2012 list, make a blanket!

LOL, placing an orders...you are funny... They are super warm, and pretty cheap to make too. The instructions are all over YouTube, seriously anyone could do it.
