The Finished Blanket
Here is the finished blanket. I’ve flipped it over so you can see both the chevron and the plain sides. I do LOVE this color combo. As you can see, my napkin tip gives you perfectly mitered corners.
Bonus Tip for Scraps
As I said, be sure and save your all your scraps. The 6″ squares make fabulous little dusting cloths to use around the house. The texture of the fleece soaks up dust like a sponge and hangs onto it.
The strips from the edges are fun for the kids to play with. They will make ropes out of them, leashes for their stuffed animals, just all sorts of stuff. My son likes to use them to make matching boondoggle bracelets.
See. Makes a nice smooshy bracelet to match your pretty blanket!
There you go – enjoy your blankets. Try not to make a HUGE mountain of them like I did.
