Hi ladies - among other things I am a cheer mom and I am responsible for the communications and fundraising efforts of the squad. We are contemplating making no sew double sided fleece blankets to sell at next year's football games. I do not think we will get more than $20 per blanket so I calculated it this way - based on 54-58" long by 45" wide for a lap blanket, I figure we need about 2.5 yds per blanket(1.25 yd per side).
Therefore in order to get any decent money for these, I figure we need to have our cost come in at $10/blanket (not including shipping and labor which would be contributed by the squad) - basically around $4.00/yd.
I can go with solids - purple, black and white are school colors, or a football theme since they will be sold at the games.
Joann's had the football themed fabric on sale at $4.00/yd but it looks like they stopped that. Does anyone know of a good source to get decent fleece at a good price? I can buy 50 yds at a time.... Thanks!!!
