Monday Made It - Cardinals Blanket

It's Monday and Columbus Day... which means I got an extra day with the hubby!!!!  I love three day weekends!!!!

It's Monday and that means it's time for Monday Made It with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics!


I only have one item to contribute and it has absolutely NOTHING to do with school, but I love it and so does the hubby!  It was a joint effort by me and the hubby.  So, my hubby is a huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals ( We are watching game 3 of the NLCS as I blog).  A few weeks back we bought some Cardinals fleece at Johann's to make a no sew blanket as fall is finally setting in.  Our date night on Saturday included Star Trek: Into Darkness and blanket making! :)  Doesn't get much sweeter than that!

Here is the fleece.  We got two yards of each.  It's a great STL pattern.  As I said, it's no sew so all we needed was scissors.  


There was some remnant edges, so the first thing I did was cut off the edges so I would have a clean edge to start with.


Next, just lay the two pieces on top of one another.  Try to line them up as best as possible.


Now here is where I made a mistake.  I should have cut the corners out first, but I got a little ahead of myself and starting cutting the strips to tie.  I also made a second mistake here and didn't cut my strips long enough the first try.  I tied about 5 and then had to take them out and cut everything a little longer and start tying again.  


I did all the cutting and then the hubby would start tying at one end, while I started tying at the other end.  We did one side at a time, cut then tie.  I didn't get any pictures of the tied strips.


Here is the final product!!!!  It's just the perfect size for curling up and watching the Cardinals win another World Series!!!


I think he likes it!


Now I'm off to go check out everyone else's Monday Made It's!!!
