When I saw this blanket tutorial on This Mama Makes Stuff during Celebrate The Boy 2011, I knew I found a great idea for Travis' upcoming birthday.
Here's my version:
I used black minky (the swirly type) because, well, that's the only type they had that day, so I decided to make it work. Considering the dragging around it will have to take, black might be a smart choice.
This was a very quick/easy project, it took only a few hours!
And because I'm such a sucker, I let him have it early...
