I made this blanket for my boyfriend’s mother for Christmas. She is a huge Michael Jackson fan so I wanted to get her something to do with MJ. I finally decided to make her something with less than two weeks to go until Christmas. The blanket is made out of fleece. For the silhouette of MJ I found an image online, modified it, and had it enlarged. I used a die cut machine at work for the lettering. The coloring is hard to see in the photos, but the blanket is black, MJ is done in gray, and the lettering is done in white along with the glove. I then attached sequins on, by hand, to the glove. For MJ and the letters I used a zigzag stitch on my sewing machine. I finished the blanket off with black satin blanket edging. The blanket has two layers of black fleece, because I did not want the stitching to show in the back.








I was kind of nervous about it, but she ended up loving it! I was so happy and she actually wants me to make her another.

Thanks for looking! Questions, comments, and criticisms welcomed
