I made my first tie blanket a few years back for a gift. So, if you want to get crafty, here's an easy blanket to make and it's WARM! This is the latest one Claire made. Yes, Claire made...all by herself:)
You'll need 2 different pieces of fleece. You can do any size you want but we typically go with 2 yards of each color/style
Lay the material on the floor (or table if you have one large enough). Lay other piece on top.
Make sure it's flat and smooth.
