Holiday Countdown #5: Handmade Gifts

By December 17, 2010

Follow me on:

DIY Fleece Blanket (Photo by J Burrell) There's just a scant week left till Christmas Eve. Forget the stores. It's time to break out the craft supplies and make some quick gifts for the college kids and 20somethings in your life - and everyone else too. Because this soft fleece blanket will keep everyone warm, and it only takes an hour or two to make. Whip one up in school colors, a cozy plaid or wintry white to warm up that dorm or first apartment. Or make it part of a cozy couch potato package by adding fuzzy felt slippers, a DVD (Pirate Radio, anyone?) and popcorn.
