And from the leftover strips...they all got scarves to match their quillows. They will always know which is their scarf!
I made the blankees 54 inches square...but they can be made in any size. I followed a tutorial I found here...the biggest job is cutting everything down to size. Once the reversible blanket is completed...it is folded and tucked into the pillow pocket.
I attempted the folding and tucking lessons on Christmas Eve...but we may have to give a refresher course one day.
Emme and Spencer got fleece blankets from my aunt (that would be their great-great Aunt Kay) for baby gifts...and they still treasure them to this day. But the fleecy softness has long since disappeared...and so now they can retire their old blankees and take quillows along for their travels.
So that was the project that was still on my sewing machine right before Christmas. Something always gets left until the last minute...and this year it was the quillows.
Have a great day...
