    Critter Blankets

    I saw one on here a while back and thought it was the cutest thing! Both of mine are made the same. I cut and tied the edges of mine instead of sewing because I am lazy and thought it would be easier! They were so much fun to make. Instructions are at Ben Franklin Crafts, bfranklin.com.

    Way too cute. I went to Benfranklin.com but could not find it. Could you help with a bit more directions?

    It is bfranklincrafts.com. Search critter blankets. Also search this site for bstroud51 and there is info. and one she did. That is where I got the idea. I did mine a little different because I thought it would be faster. Hers is so much better than mine. They were fun to make. I want to get some zebra fleece and try to find a zebra. Thanks everyone for the kind words!

    I saw another post that said to sew 2 lines of stitching across his middle and then cut between the stitching so the halves are sealed when you cut them apart

    I bet kids (or fun loving adults) will really love these. Thanks for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
