I wanted to say: I think it's so fun to work with a pattern that's made the rounds so you can see all the different versions people have come up with. Would you believe this woman made three of these blankets in a single day?
Turns out, I love it. It's so cheerful and works as a beach blanket, couch blanket, picnic blanket and afternoon nap blanket. I hope that this cozy spot will be the backdrop of many of our family's sweet days.
To make it, I made the thrift store rounds and cherrypicked my favorite of the vintage sheets, pillowcases and tablecloths, which I used for the panels. I used this bedspread for the back and made it bigger than the original pattern called for because Nekos requested a blanket big enough to both snuggle on the couch with. Done and done.
