Flashback Friday -- Peep-Quack-Chirp Blanky

Fleece is SO FRIENDLY to work with! It's very forgiving, and soft and fuzzy. It has just a little stretch, which is perfect for making softies. Best of all, the raw edges don't fray. All these qualities make it absolutely perfect for certain projects!

Last year I made this Peep-Quack-Chirp blanky for my niece's 2nd birthday. Yes, she is obsessed with Peep and the Big Wide World, too!

The little guys are appliqued on using my Top Secret Fleece Applique Technique (okay, I just made that up!), and I just LOVE how they turned out!!

I've also made fleece blankets with intricate snowflakes, trees, Halloween cats, and... gee, I don't know. Lots of others. It's fun and quick and has such a great result!

I don't suppose you'd consider sharing your technique? That blanket is absolutely adorable!
