This is a no-sew fleece blanket kit. It contains 1.5 yards of fleece with sample fringe cut a both ends of two opposite sides of the fleece, our special tag already attached, a fringe cutting template and directions.
We try to make the process very simple and to make sure our Blanket Angels get good directions. But sometimes things go awry, and we receive completed blankets that need some TLC before we can give them to a child in foster care.
The blanket below illustrates several problems that we ask Blanket Angels to avoid:
fringe cut on all four blanket sides, resulting in...
fringe cut into the pre-attached tag
fringe pieces that are tied together, resulting in a blanket that will not lie flat
If you cut fringe only on the 2 edges where the sample fringe are cut, you will not cut into the pre-attached tag.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT OUR FLEECE BLANKETS:
Use only one layer of fleece.
Cut fringe at TWO opposite ends, not all four sides.
Tie one knot in each fringe. Do not tie fringe together.
Special tag is already attached. Never cut into the tag.
On the tag, fill in YOUR first name after "Handmade by."
On the tag, leave the top line BLANK for the child to complete.
On the tag, add a short note to the child who receives your blanket. Examples
Another problem to avoid
Please do not complete the first line of the tag. The first line should be left BLANK so that the child who receives it can add their name.
Be sure to add the Blanket Angel's first name on the second line after the "Handmade by" heart. The personal touch of an individual name is preferable to the name of a group or organization.
We cherish our Blanket Angels and the essential work they do to support our mission to provide handmade blankets to children in foster care. Thanks for your careful attention to making the best quality blankets possible.
