This is the finished product of my determination to craft something that my boyfriend truly loves for his Christmas gift. (Instead of him just saying he loves it because he knows it's something I made )
I am glad to say that the mission was successful. He is crazy about it, and has been showing it off to his friends who are disappointed to learn that it is one of a kind.
I am in love with how it came out. It's not perfect, but it came out so much better than I even imagined it would.
It's also super poofy and warm.
And on his bed:
I've never made any type of blanket before, outside of a knit baby blanket, so I'm pretty proud of it.
It was a massive project in terms of size, and it was all I did for four days straight immediately following the end of my fall semester.
To get the symbol, I brought a print out of it to a Kinko's and had them blow it up as large as they could. I cut that image out and traced it onto white fleece that I sewed onto the front.
The black fabric is two sheets I bought. Unfortunately, I bought fitted sheets, and didn't have the time to return them, so I had to cut off the elastic, and cut them into identical rectangles before sewing them together. I'll be sure I have flat sheets before I leave the store next time.
Please let me know what you think, and I would be happy to answer any questions.
