To Sew Fleece
Bring Back That
We all remember having super
soft and warm fleece blankets growing up. Our
grandmother or great aunt had made it and sent
it to us from somewhere far away. It was soft
and fluffy and WOW, we slept with it all winter
long. Memories of grandma still linger to this
I can still remember having
a cold in the winter, (back before Global
Warming!) and sitting in front of the wood
burning stove, with my Grandma in the kitchen
cooking up some of her home made chicken soup.
All the while I am cozily bundled up in my
super soft fleece blanket, kleenex box in one
hand, waiting patiently for that yummy soup of
health and goodness...
When you have kids, you'll
want to pass along this special gift to them
and even for their kids, just like your
grandparents' did back when you were a kid. So
what should you look for in a fleece blanket?
Hopefully this article will help.
What kind of fleece blanket
will your child or grandchild like? Well, this
is a hard one. You'll need to figure out what
is popular in the culture or choose some common
theme. Do they like cowboys or dogs or cats? Or
if Mom or Dad are in the military perhaps, how
about a military themed blanket like a Marine
Corp Logo, or an Army Eagle? Or how about a
favorite carton character? Almost every kid
loves firefighters, so maybe that is the right
choice?! You'll want to choose just the right
one for them.
Ok, so now you have chosen a
theme or character or logo. What else will you
need to know? Well for one, you'll want to know
what it is made of and how to clean it. Most
fleece blankets are made from polyester polar
fleece and can be washed just like regular
clothes in the washer and dryer. This is good
to know cause we all know how clean kids
are.... NOT! Being washable is of
uber-importance for the next time they
accidentally drop the sippy cup filled with
orange juice on it!
Fleece blankets are
absolutely fantastic for insulation. This is
what keeps us so warm when wearing them. I can
remember having a fleece winter's cap in the
winter and it felt just so fantastic, that I
don't ever remember feeling cold growing up in
the North East. The fleece weave is what makes
them so soft and fluffy and warm.
Fleece blankets have been
around for a long time and are a long-standing
family tradition. In the past, most grandmas
would sew them, but you'd be hard pressed to
find anybody now who even knows HOW to make
one. I don't think my mom knows how to do much
more than latch hook!
Do you even OWN a sewing
machine? Is Singer even still around? Instead
of learning how to make these super soft fleece
blankets, start letting your kids / grandkids
have that warm and fuzzy feeling of warmth that
they'll carry with them for a lifetime just
like the memories we carry to this day.
