Tying the Knot




Christmas is not about presents, but the birth of a King.  I however, love to give around the holidays. This afternoon, Drew and I made a special trip to Joanne Fabrics looking for the perfect fleece materials in order to make a blanket for my grandpa. We found this cute frog pattern with red santa hats and mittens.. The pattern is super cute and very fun. My grandpa has been sick for some time and I wanted to make something that would cheer him up..
 Initially, Drew did not think this was manly, but upon second glance, he thinks this is really cheery and will make my grandpa happy. Also, my mom gave her approval too...
 The blanket is six and half yards.. It is so fuzzy and cute.. Fleece tie blankets are so easy.. However, this was not a cheap gift. It cost me $30 and the fleece was on sale half off... So, if you are thinking about making a quick Christmas gift, make sure the fleece is on sale...
I cannot wait to give it to Grandpa on Christmas Eve!
