I made one of these a couple weeks ago... for my kitten!! I made the size much smaller and before tying off the fourth side I stuffed it with pillow stuffing... now its a nice cozy kitty bed!
i just did that with the scraps from the pirate blanket! they fight over who can it on it..
i just got material for 2 more blankets. my work xmas exchange (roses + lime green) and for a family member (scottie dogs and the same lime green).
i hope they like 'em cuz i sure do!
i'll post photos when i finish 'em.
