NCAA or NFL Blanket Surprise
by Lisa P.
OK, so football season is fun and exciting for most of us. We get to support our favorite team whether it be the University that we attended or the town in which we grew up in. Maybe even a team that we just grew to love over the years. Whatever the reason, we generally follow a specific team. This makes watching games more exciting.
I enjoy watching that special team with my husband. We happen to be Utah Ute Fans, as that is where my husband graduated from. We also watch the Utah Aggie’s but aren’t as die hard for them. We love the Utes and have apparel that shows our support for his school.
Recently I made my husband a Ute blanket to take with us to games, or to just snuggle up together at home in while we watch the big game. It is also there to bug those fans who come to our house who aren’t Ute fans themselves. I decided to make him a blanket as an extra gift. It was super easy to complete and literally took no time at all.
I went to the craft store, picked out my fabric, and was already half way done. Then I had my lovely sister-in-law do a simple stitch around the outside of the blanket. ( I have tried sewing and am just not good at it. Even a simple stitch! I know, I am working on it.) Finally, I cut up to the stitch on all four sides of the blanket about an inch apart, threw it in the washing machine, and I was done. I had made a rag blanket and my husband loves it. We take it everywhere with us and it took little effort to complete! I included the printable to help make your blanket look more special with the saying “Love is the Thread that Binds US Together.”
The lovely and talented Aileen created the printable just for us to use. It is perfect and she did a great job. Make sure that you check out other things that she has made or put together at her shop.
We came up with colors that should be neutral enough to work with almost any team. So enjoy and I’m sure your husband will love his new blanket!
