BACKGROUND

My 9-year-old son, who likes to call himself "Flufy," has Cozy down to a science. Wherever he happens to be, if there's a couch with a blanket, he'll crawl underneath and make himself right at home. So, when it was his turn to be on the receiving end of a significant Mom-made project, I knew that he would appreciate a lap blanket.

This project is the exact blanket I made for Flufy. This is a great do-together project, if the recipient is old enough to follow a few simple color-choice rules.
