Fall is nigh!

Embroidery Blanket and Pillowcase

Made from Fleece Quick Personalized Gift

Laura-s-whiteThrow-1600

One Christmas I made these for family. A big fleece blanket with 2 pillowcases. Both personalized with name, monogram, or message. The fringe was cut the same as the fringe on the pieced fleece blanket.

The fabric is from JoAnn’s but most places that sell fabric also sell fleece. Watch summer and early fall sales. Look for the ones that say they will not pill. Otherwise all will not look good with wear and after the first laundering. It will continue to degrade after that.

Fleece is knit fabric. It does not ravel. Even though I used the full width of the fabric I serge finished the 2 edges. But leaving them without the serging looks good too. A hand sewn blanket stitch is also very attractive.

If you find yourself in need of a quick hand made item for a gift keep this in mind. Because after all, if everyone around you knows you can sew that’s what they expect - right?

Our beautiful model is our beloved Bella.
