I'm quite proud of this blanket. My sister is getting induced around 7 am this morning. It's her first baby and hasn't ever had to stay in the hospital overnight, so I wanted to make her something she could keep with her that would make her sterile room feel more homey. Knitting was out of the question because it's slow going when I finally get started lol. My next thought was "I'll sew something!" But I'm not a big sew-er either lol. The answer came to me while I was browsing a Joann's ad online: blizzard fleece was 50% off reg price! So I got my butt over there and bought two yards of blue and 1/4 yard orange and made my sister an Auburn University-inspired blanket. It's her favorite sports team. I didn't want to make it baby-centric because I wanted her to be able to use it all the time. Anyway, I traced an enlarged image of the schools letters, made 6 freezer paper stencils, ironed them onto the orange felt and cut them out. Then I glued them on using no-sew fabric glue and let them dry. I think it came out great. The stencils were a little fussy to cut out, especially the little triangles where the letters overlap. That's why some of the letters gap a little in one or two places. My mom loves it and wants me to make a baby-sized version to throw over the car seat Smiley

This is the coolest blanket ever! I definitely know some Auburn fans that would kill for this blanket.

I would rather be bitten by a snake than walk thru a spiderweb and not know where the spider is!

Even though it's horribly Auburn  Grin, it looks great! I actually thought the logos were printed on in the thumbnail.
