Making Blankets for Project Linus

This week we worked on a great project we found though the website Doing Good Together: no-sew blankets for the Greater Boston Area Project Linus. People make blankets and quilts, and Project Linus donates them to children in hospitals, shelters, or in need of comfort. I thought this would be a great project for my young children, as we pull out extra blankets this time of year for our own beds. I ordered some large pieces of fleece, and followed the simple directions. I cut fringe (using the lines of the plaid print as guidelines), and used a seam ripper to make slits. Then, my children pulled each piece through the slit, to create a finished look. We packed them in a recycled box and walked it down to the post office. It felt great to send them along!
