Fleece Blanket - Fleece Throw Giveaway #2

The fleece blankets (fleece throws) or fleece baby blankets that Crooked Brook and I offer for giveaways, are fleece blankets with a slight imperfection or with the embroidery mistake cut off.

There are many things you could do with these second quality fleece throws. First, if it is a smudge that can be washed out, you may be able to use the blankets as they are.  If not, you could make fleece pullovers, scarves, booties, slippers, hats, pillows, vests, or lots of other items.  Another option would be to add crocheted edging around the outside for a great blanket.  Of course, if you feel so inclined, I’d love for you to use them to make something for Central Ohio Binky Patrol, but that is not required!

The prize for Fleece Blanket Giveaway #2 is two, 50” x 60”, 100% Polyester, charcoal fleece blankets or approximately the equivalent in fleece blankets that have had the embroidery mistakes removed. Here is a picture (click to make larger if you'd like!) …

Awesome right?!  So, here are the rules..

Contest ends midnight (eastern standard time) 07/18/11,
Prize will be shipped to winner within 30 days of contest end.
You must be 18 years or older to win.

Now, in order to enter you need to leave a comment below about what wonderful item you would make with this fleece.  Winners will be chosen at random. Please be sure to include your email address as well so we can get in contact with you!!  Have fun!

I would use it to make doggy blankets and donate them to my local shelter or rescue group.

Pam said...

I would use it for backing to quilts or toddler jackets.

Baby playmat quilt (one side) or lap throw for charity.
Thanks for the opportunity. mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

I think this fleece would be great for a teen's quilt backing, especially a black and white one with horses. Or it would be fine as a backing for lap quilts for a nursing home. They are always short of suitable Men's laprobes.

Cat said...

These would be great for the back of prayer quilts. Thanks for the opportunity.

It seems that several others have already stated what I had thought of using the blankets for; quilt backing and/or laprobes.

I agree that it would be great for quilt backing. Thanks for the chance to win.

The size of the fleece is perfect for a lap robe. I have the intension of making a medalion to place in the center of the blanket to then be given to a senior care center. Maybe in red, white,& blue.

I have found that these fleece blankets make perfect backing for quilts. I try to make the top as big as the fleece will allow while still being able to turn the edges over as binding so it is soft to the touch on the front as well as the back.

What a lucky find for this treasure...making quillows with fleece & recycled denim for the homeless. Even tho 110+degrees today, one can die from the cold in the desert in the winter months

I make fleece puppy quilts that go with the new puppies to their new homes... that is where this lovely blanket would end up, in some of those blankets

Mary said...

I have a new nephew that I would use the fleece to make something for.

wendy said...

It would be scarves or lap throws for the winter.
