Blanket for Grandma

So ya know when you walk into Hobby Lobby needing one item for a project you are trying to finish and wind up getting something to do an entirely different project. That's how it was a couple of weeks ago. I went into pick up something and my daughter found music polar fleece. This wasn't just ANY polar fleece with random music notes no, this at the ALTO clef sign on it. (My mom plays viola, viola plays alto clef, the way she explains it is "ya know the notes in the white space between the treble clef and bass clef...that's what the viola plays, that's alto clef." Because it's such a rare symbol when we find things WITH that symbol we have to get them, only this time it involved an entirely new craft project.

So the girls and I set out to make a no-sew polar fleece blanket for grandma. These are a lot of fun to make and warm too. The girls couldn't resist getting a quick snuggle in under the blanket before wrapping it up for Grandma for Mother's day!
