Brooke's Wedding Blanket
One of my favorite gifts to give for a wedding is this wedding blanket. I lucked out right at Christmas time this year and found these throw blankets at K-Mart for less than $20, which is way cheaper than buying the fake fur and minky fabric out of which these are made. One side is the soft and slinky minky fabric, but the other is like a fake sheep's wool.
I bought three and planned on saving them for future weddings, but I couldn't help myself. Adam and I now have two of them on our couches because they are so soft and comfy. The third I used for my sister's wedding. All I had to do was rip out the seam in the corner to separate the top and bottom fabrics, embroider, and resew the seam right up. It was quick and easy, and made this gorgeous blanket. My sister and her husband said it is their favorite blanket to cuddle under.
