    I made that one in about 2 hours..

    It starts out with Fleece Material...here are the instructions

    Im pretty sure you can make them as small or as large as you want.

    Instruction #7 is kinda weird they way the put it...but to be honest what you do in cut 4 or 5 inch squares in each corner

    Ooooooooh! Nice work, PA!

    There's something special about receiving a cozy throw made by your mother. I still have an afghan my mother crocheted for me as a high school graduation gift! It's a bit like having a special hug when you're missing her!

    Thats why it took me 2 hours instead of 1...dear god I am seriously OCD about some stuff..the panel ones (like the one I have pictured here) you reall have to watch where you are cutting (if you are doing 2 panel blankets, usually people put a solid color on the backs)to make sure you arent cutting past the border..Ill try and get my daughters done tonight and take pics to show you one without borders! Hers is going to be GORGOROUS!! I may do these for christmas next year for my family!

    Here's one I got from my older son for Christmas a couple of years ago. He won it on an annual TV charity auction. Nathanael calls it my "guay". That is what he calls his special blanket. He'll bring it to me and say, "Here's your guay, Grandma".

    Here is my daughters with the pillow!





    I think the reason I just got so into these is because 1. its not perfect and 2. I can get it done in 1 night!

    Once the cutting is done and I tie off the corners I can sit on the couch and finish tying the sides!
