Throw Blanket

I have quite a few DIY projects that I've seen online that I really want to try sometime.  I'm just a little apprehensive about my skill level and patience to see it through.  This DIY throw blanket would be a really fun project - now all I need is a sewing machine and the perfect fabric.  Then just add good book (or my new Kindle!) and nook of the sectional couch and you're set.

 final product!  now work backwards...

  • Wool or wool-blend fabric; size depends on how large you’d like your throw to be. My fabric is 60″ wide and I purchased 1.5 yards, for a total throw size of 60″ x 52″, which is a nice size for general, lazy-everyday use.
  • Trim, enough to cover the two raw edges of your fabric plus a few extra inches
  • Sharp scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Sewing machine and matching thread
