Birthday Boy Project: Super no-sew fleece throw

Yesterday I picked up some Marvel-licensed fabrics and a no-sew fleece throw blanket for birthday present crafting. I started on these crafts last night, to ensure I have plenty of time to work on everything and get them shipped out in time for the special day.

I took up the fleece blanket first because I could do it downstairs while watching Coraline, which I scored at the dollar store for $3.50!

I knew that the blanket was n0-sew, and I knew that it would probably take some time, but I did not know how sore my back would be after leaning over for about 2 hours. The work was also repetitive and felt a little bit uninspired. Not to say that the final product was not worth it. Perhaps the saddest part is that getting the kit was cheaper than buying fabric to make a throw. With the discount we nabbed, the kit was $20; to get the same amount of fabric needed to make one of these from chosen fleece would have been closer to almost $45 for one panel.

So this project was easier on my wallet if not my fantastic whimsies.

The highlight of working on the blanket was Zoe, who upon coming downstairs when I was nearing completion, decided that the blanket was obviously there for her. She came over and plopped right down on it and didn’t move until the thing was done, and I had to pick it up to shake it off and fold it. Ah, cats.

The finished product does look great, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little jealous. I should have purchased the Batman one for Eric and I. Oh well. Hindsight and all that.

Here are the pictures, from start to finish! And, yes, Zoe is included.
