This cozy blanket is made with minky fabric, which is ultra cuddly and soft. It’s also light enough that it won’t be too heavy to use in the summer. While this pattern is on the small side, you can easily enlarge it to make a larger blanket for teens and adults to enjoy. Because minky fabric is so slick and felt fabric can fray, the tutorial recommends using an iron on adhesive like Stick Double Sided Fusible Interfacing. This lightweight, sheer webbing acts like a glue and doesn’t add any bulk to your projects.
This soft fabric football is perfect if you have toddlers and little ones in the house! They’ll be able to toss it around safely without hurting themselves or anyone else. You could even make a few of these to toss around with your pets. Poly-Fil Fiber Fill ensures that your fabric football will stay soft and in shape even after hours of play!
