We were freezing at a crop, and she ran out to her car to get her "Wish Blanket"--an expensive gift from a friend. It was kind of like a Snuggie--but really cool because you could stay warm and be a functional person at the same time. (Not so easy to do with a Snuggie.) She showed me her blanket, I made fun of her (aren't I nice?), and then I tried it on.
I didn't want to give it back. I had to have one. But not at that price tag.
And so a project was born.
Found these inexpensive blankets at Walmart for $10. The key is the fabric--soft and really lofty. Bonus points for being printed on both sides (you'll see why later.) It also had finished blanket stitched sides (yippee!!)Fold the blanket in half, like so...
