Okay, easiest sewing project ever! And everyone loves a good fleece blanket, right?
Lay out 2 yards of your favorite fleece. I bought USC fabric from Joann's website for my brother-in-law. They have all sorts of different school and major league team fabric, it's pretty cool.
I have one with penguins on it that my grandmother made me years ago, and it's still one of my most comfy blankets. And though I wish I could say that BIL loved his school-spirited fleece, he just left it in Hawaii. :( Apparently someone else had already made him a very similar blanket before. Fail! Next year we're just going to give him a giftcard.
