All of the cute gifts for my boyfriend.~

I started out with a comfy 20 dollar sweatshirt that i added an embroidered patch and hood tag to.







Then I decided to make him an eight foot blanket!
I went with a tie blanket.
I started by using an old overhead projector to cut out an applique of the Grejoy's kraken.
Yellow and black are one of my favorite color combinations.

I first attached the applique using spray adhesive so it didn't shift during sewing.
I attached the whole applique with a zigzag stitch.
I just used the overhead projector to stencil out some words with sharpie for the tag on the back.
I attached the tag with a diamond stretch stitch.
This was my biggest project to date.

Just thought I'd share for ideas!
Sorry if I left anything out or messed anything up! It's my first post.  Embarrassed

This has inspired me to make one with the white tree of Gondor for my own partner.

Thus, to that end, a couple of questions:

You said you made a tie blanket. Did you appliqué the kraken before you tied it, or after? (I'm assuming I'm thinking of the right kind of tie blanket - if not, forgive me!)

What kind of fabric did you use? (I'm assuming fleece, but one never knows)

And I can't quite see how you've done the edging on the Kraken - did you fold it under, or leave it out?

That sounds AMAZING!
I appliqued it before i tied. I Zig zag stitched around in the same yellow and used black tread and a straight stitch to separate the tentacles.
Yes, I did indeed use fleece. (Got all of it 80% off Cheesy)
I left the edges out since it wont ravel.
