I agree! Too bad I don't know how to crochet

Looking at it...I'm presuming she hemmed the charms, then hand blanket stitched w/yarn, then crocheted that frame, then joined squares....my only criticism is that the "squares" aren't really square....there are toe catchers at the intersections......but I do like that idea......if I were to do it though, I think I would do a narrower crochet border...but she did a good job....very creative idea......

Note: just went back to site and read some of comments......she sewed two together....so it's reversible....better yet.....this could be a good winter project.....if I start cutting/sewing now........GO 5" die........

Our local chapter of Project Linus gets a lot of fleece blankets with a crocheted trim, and they look great. I never thought to do that with fabric. I know you can use a special blade called a skip blade on your rotary cutter to put holes in the edge of the fleece…guess you could do that with fabric as well.

I made this very pattern a few years ago in order to use up some yarn I had. It turned out pretty, but heavy. And with the "old fashioned" look, I only had one taker and they may have done that just to spare my feelings......LOL! Was a good way to use up some charms I had, too. Very portable as each block was done separately......

Yes, the "toe catchers" bothered me, too. But you can square off those squares, I think, and eliminate the open spaces. I assume she used a large needle (not a crochet needle) to pierce the fabric squares and create the blanket stitch, to which she then attached her crochet stitches.

It's an adorable blanket and something I may attempt. This would be cute using "I Spy" fabrics, or fussy cut squares for a toddler, I think.

I love this idea with the fabric squares and crocheting. Another project to keep in mind! I bought that skip blade - thanks to somebody on the board, that is how I heard about it. The project the board member did and which I also did after her recommendation, was a fleece blanket, skip blade, and then crocheted around the edge of the fleece blanket however many rows to your desire. It really looks nice and my daughter appreciated the gift.

Hmm, have to look into that "skip blade". I don't want to use charm packs, but scraps would be good.....for a winter couch throw......darn it got rid of all my yarn.....another use of JAF coupons......
