What are you most proud of?
I just love the soft, cushy feel of this blanket and how well the fleece attached to the blanket.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
When using the sewing machine to stitch the blanket to the fleece, gently guide the two layers. The fleece will have a tendency to get hung up, so be sure to use a stitch length that is medium to long. I made sure that my needle was new, so that it didn't snag the fleece and get caught. Try a few sample stitches on a throwaway piece before starting in on the blanket. I also tied a few pieces of yarn through both layers - coming up from the knitted side through to the fleece side - like a quilt. Enjoy!!
