Two years ago I made a giant flag to show my support for the Wests Tigers
using polar fleece material (Check out the flag in use in picture 2). My girlfriend absolutely loves the flag, not because of her love for the mighty Tigers but because it's massive (2m x 2.5m, about 6.5'x7') and warm - she often uses it during winter while lying on the couch, or out and about (picture 3).
I thought that I would make her a simmilar blanket, designed for use on the couch. The twist it has compared to any other blanket is that it has a hood built in, kind of making it a huge hooded poncho. After starting the project I came across this couch dress
, which is similar in function, but mine just has a hood to keep you as covered up as possible (and it's a bit cheaper too).
The only tools required are a sewing machine and pins, the consumables are cotton thread (colour of your choice, will be hidden) and the polar fleece material (step 3).
