Our Snuggie

You have seen the commercials.




Your kids have begged you to buy one, AND GET ONE FREE!

Do you have a Snuggie?


No, we don't either.

We do have this blanket that I just finished.




You may remember I started it over Thanksgiving break. I longed to finish it over Christmas, but who has the time then?




And when I had two kids home sick last week, I finished it.




I love it. I made it with old jeans from everyone in our family and the green velvet maternity dress I wore with all three boys.

It is very heavy and warm and better than any old Snuggie. Even if they do offer buy one, get one free.

I'm a dork and have been dying to get a Snuggie! But I'd much rather have your quilt! It looks sooo comfy and warm. Great job!

Nothin' better than a homemade blanket like that! And I love the size of it. And the fact that you made it from old jeans and your dress? Priceless.

And you know the best thing about your blanket/quilt, aside from the fact that's it's awesome and I'm insanely jealous of your talent and creativity? It doesn't make those who use it look like silly monks!
