 How To Sew Fleece
Bring Back That
Fluffy Feeling

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 day...



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.


The proprietor of Fluffy Fleece Blankets, Ira Cohen, has been involved with the garment center for over 20 Years. His experience with designs, colors, sales, and forecasting trends has led Ira to be a leader in his field. His working in Manhattan has afforded him the ability to work with top designers and artists in the industry. Ira has an extensive background in fabric sourcing throughout the world. The printers and mills that Fluffy Fleece Blankets use all have passed strict quality control requirements far above the industry norm.
