"I Want To Make a Blanket. What Do I Do?"

Thank you to ALL of you who have shown interest in this year's brigade.  I wanted to write a quick post outlining the "rules" (for lack of a better word!) for those of you who are new to our project!

Here's what you need to do:

Make a no-sew fleece blanket
-1.5 yards in size (Some people made 2 yard blankets last year.  Either is fine!)
-If you've never made one before, please refer to the "Blanket Tutorial" tab on our home page.

Take a picture of you/your kids with the finished blanket and send it to me so we can add it to the blog. 

Check back often at the Our Progress - 2014 tab to see pictures of all the proud, smiling, blanket making faces and their beautiful, colorful blankets.  (Mallory and I both LOVE this part!)

This next part is VERY important to Lurie's:
To prevent transmission of household allergens and other contaminants
-please launder and THOROUGHLY dry the finished blanket (fleece retains quite a bit of moisture.  They often feel dry when they're warm right out of the dryer even when they're not quite dry).
-place in a clean trash bag tied at the top.
-if you have more than one blanket, it is completely fine to place multiple, clean blankets in the same bag.
