I’m always cold, even in summer, so our house is littered with throw blankets all year long. Each family member has a favorite, so when I spotted flannel fabric on sale recently, I decided to grab some and make a few DIY throw blankets. After all, it’s freezing outside. Everyone in my family is in the mood to cuddle up with a blanket right now — not just me. I can predict a very cozy winter for my gang! Even the dog is getting his own (yes, I’m serious).
Inspired to make your own throw blanket? I’ve rounded up some of my favorites to inspire you. And here’s the thing: Some of the blankets on my list only take about an hour or so to make once you get the hang of it.
