Okay, so the boyfriend is graduating from highschool at the end of the month and moving off to college at the beginning of August. I need something super special to get him, but I've already blown a lot of money on his recent April birthday, so I'm looking for a good craft. I thought a blanket might be nice, but how do you make a blanket/quilt sentimental? He loves music, tea, and the environment. This is a big occasion and I need help!!!

A blanket can be sentimental, besides being made by someone special, if you are able to perhaps depict or use something that has memories attached.  Perhaps old shirts or clothing?  There was one craft on here where a girl had taken all her old cheerleading shirts/ shorts and made it into a quilt.  If you are able to make a blanket that depicts something important to him or that is a reminder of the two of you, that might work.

sorry, this is probably really late... but i once had a nickname i called my then-boyfriend embroidered on a blanket i'd bought (i'm a lover of paper but not at all crafty when it comes to fabric.... maybe one day... perhaps it's because my 8th grade home ec teacher taught me to sew right handed even though i'm left handed... sorry, tangent. and bitterness. 10 years later. sheesh.)

ANYWAY he loved it!
