A Warm Fuzzy Blanket For A Good Cause

I just picked up some fabric yesterday for a new, quick project.  I will be attending a benefit over the weekend and I wanted to make something that could be raffled off to raise more money.  Of course, this idea occurred to me mere days before the event.  That's great - another opportunity to work myself into a tizzy  (does anyone use the word tizzy anymore?).  I usually do get these wonderful ideas right before they need to be done.  Then I'm up until all hours of the night trying to get them finished. 

No worries, though.  This project is simple enough so that I shouldn't have any problems.  I bought some flannel and coordinating fleece which I'm planning to sew together to make a warm, fuzzy, cuddly, blanket to use while sitting on the couch.  Before you know it, the really cold weather will be here, and it will be so comforting to snuggle up with this blanket. 

The flannel has a pink background with white and chocolate brown accents.  The fleece that I bought to coordinate is chocolate brown.  I love pink and brown together, and this should turn out just the way I'm imagining it.

 I'll post when the blanket is done.  I'm planning to work on it over the next couple of nights.

  1. Based on some of the other things I've seen you do, this should be a snap for you. And, when it's done, everyone will want to have it. If not for themselves, it would make a great Christmas gift.

  2. Thank you for the kind words. Sometimes it's difficult to give away something that you've made, and put a lot of love into, but knowing it's for a good cause makes it easier. Plus, I can always make a another one! I certainly don't have to worry about not having a sewing machine to use!
