What materials did you use? Polar fleece, thread, rotary cutter, mat & ruler, serger set on flatlock and 3-thread overlock

What are you most proud of? Some parts worked really well, and there aren't any really really horrible parts.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep the thread tails *really* long to make it easier to secure and hide them at the end. I found the needle thread was constantly too short and had to re-do a few parts where it unravelled. Tip: if you want to unravel a 3-thread flatlock in a hurry, just pull out the needle thread and the loops will practically fall off!

This is such a cute blanket!! I have a serger that was given to me awhile ago from a friend who doesn't sew anymore, but have been totally intimidated to use it! Glad to see you project came out so nicely.

You are becoming a serging queen! Look at all of your projects- wow! I'm glad to see that your flatlocked squares worked, even if the fleece gave you some trouble.
