This thread got my fingers itchy to craft. We'll be camping next weekend for the homecoming game at University of Virginia where our son plays tuba in the marching band. Lat game was windy and cold so I decided t make a stadium blanket. I ended up with enough material to make two, one large one small. I got both of them done in about 3 hours. They were very easy. Hope the pic comes out well. This is my first attempt at attaching a pic to a post.

It is so easy! Get 2 pieces of fleece the same size and whatever color or print you want. Lay it out flat and match edges. Cut out a 4" square from each corner. Then cut 1" strips 4" into each edge. Tie the strips together and you're done. Here's a link to the site I got the instructions from. It has pics of each stage.

I had fun making them and they were sooo easy! Hope you get to make one yourself. You may get hooked!

I hear ya on that one. I have a dormer room upstairs that is just my crafting stuff. There's yarn, and floss, and cross stitch books and picture frames and fabric and ribbon and beads etc. I even overflowed out into the extra bedroom and have my sewing machine and table set up out there since I can barely walk into my craft room!
