My youngest daughter wasn't overly enthusiastic about the homemade Christmas idea. She doesn't consider herself crafty or artistic. She is a manager of a women's clothing establishment, works long hard hours during the holiday season, and would rather just buy her gifts. And I don't blame her!! But, since we agreed to do homemade gifts this year, she joined in the fun.
Here is one of the simple no-sew blankets she put together for her four nieces:
Boy, were they a hit!! The girls absolutely loved them!
The two layers are held together with these simple knots. They measured approximately 60" by 54".
Last year, the youth group at our church got together and made these blankets for the each of the children at group home in Haiti. It was something everyone could participate in doing and the children were so happy to have their own blanket!!
