I found this pirate fabric at Joann's on the remnant rack. I thought it was so cute. I made it in hopes that he would like a lighter blankey for summer but he's still very attached to his fleece blankets. He does play with this one in the day but won't sleep with it. This is the second rag blanket I have made and this one only took an hour with the machine. Sure beats doing it by hand!
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before...Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty..."~President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
