It is a large fleece blanket that folds into a comfy fleece pillow. You can even add straps out of reinforced fleece for her to use it as a lightweight purse!
This is a VERY easy sewing craft. You only need to know how to measure, and sew three straight lines.
Step 1: Materials
If you want to make the blanket with only one color, you will need 2 1/2 yards of fleece
If you want the blanket and pillow part to be out of different fabrics, you will need 2 yards of the blanket fleece and 1/2 yard of the pillow fleece. The two colors can be your team's colors, or you can use a pattern and a solid, as in the picture.
Needle and thread
Step 2: Cutting the pillow
If you are using a different color for the pillow part, measure a 20in by 20in square and cut.
(Optional) If you want to decorate your pillow, now is the time to do it. Get creative, use ribbon, buttons, fabric paint, whatever you can find. Just remember that you will be sewing about half an inch in from three of the sides, so don't put anything there you can't sew through.
