Getting crafty? Maybe...

Superman and I decided to exchange gifts early, as he and I were both very excited about the gifts we got each other. One of the best gifts, in my opinion, that I gave him was a blanket that I -- wait for it -- MADE. Yep, that's right. I got crafty. But not alone.

I was over at Misti's the other night when she was making a blanket for her husband, and, as I watched, I couldn't help but think, "I might could do this." I mentioned that to Misti, who was more than willing to help me craft a blanket for my hubby.

So last night, with Misti's help (and scissors, lol), I made a blanket for Superman. And, for those of you who are also non-crafty, WITHOUT sewing.

The finished product:

One of Misti's little pups also liked the blanket.

Superdog, "shockingly," believes it is HER blanket, haha!

Happy Friday!

my MIL made me a "no-sew" blanket for Christmas last year. it was the first craft project she had ever finished.

blankets aren't made big enough these days so i love mine - she made it big enough for two. that way when mr. right and i snuggle we can share a blankie :)

Nice! I've seen these no-sew blankets but I'm so non-crafty that I am not sure I could do even this. But yours looks fantastic! And the puppy obviously gave it his seal of approval.
