    Default Quick and Easy Blanket

    Here is a quick and easy blanket for those who need something fast, yet nice to give. I think this fleece blanket is perfect for anyone. This one is for my daughter's boyfriend.

    I bought the yardage I wanted for a lap size, put them together, cut and tied the ends and there you have it. No hassle, no sewing, just quick, easy, and still very thoughtful!

    They also have another way of securing the ends called braiding....you cut a small slit in the middle to the strip and feed the strip next to it through the slit and gives it a softer feel than all the knots...something I had just learned about at JoAnn's the other day!

    That is similar or even like we used to do on those loop looms that we used to make pot holders when we were kids!
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    That's different. At first, I did not understand what you were saying, but I think I understand now.
