Some humans on Long Island, NY sent in the first set of pictures of shelter blankets being made. The pics really show how easy it is and they look like they had lots of fun!
Here the two fabrics are placed together. The pretty sides go on the outside.
Then, the fabric is lined up so all the edges are close together.
Next they cut out the corners (they used 4" Squares on a large blanket)
Next the strips are cut around all sides.
Then the they made the ties.
Viola! A completed blanket!
Wow! They made a whole pile!!!
Hope you have as much fun making yours as they did!! That's Lex, Lar, Drew and Matt. Their fingers don't even look tired :)
Don't forget to send in your pics of completed blankets! We can't wait to see them!
