Thank you all!!

I just wanted to extend a thank you and a warm hug to all of you who have been sending me packages of wonderful goodies for the rescues!

The harnesses and leads are a godsend - and the blankets all look so warm and fuzzy. My three keep trying to get into the packages and grab the little toys!

You are all truly amazing, generous people - thank you again!

As soon as I get back from vacay, I think Geri and I are going to be making blankets and belly bands.

Laurie, could you show us a few photos of some of the blanket? I'm going to be doing it for the first time and I just want to get a broad idea of the way some people have been doing theirs.

Thanks! That's great! Can you tell me if people always make the strips approximately the same width and size?

I can answer this question Geri----they do "vary" some in strip size (width) but not alot. Reason being= if your strips are too narrow...you will have a ga-billion of them and they are "weaker". If your strips are too wide.....they will be hard to tie and also cause a gap between the two layers. Generally--they are approx. the same. Length does vary though alot. Many people cut the strip up not very far and it results in a short tie....and cutting it up quite a-ways results in a long tie (fringe)....also resulting in a smaller end result of blanket. A happy medium is where to aim. When I have made them for humans...I usually lay the fleece out and smooth,smooth,smooth.....(both layers on top of each other) and trim both to the exact same size. Then I cut out one of the corners...approx.4"-5" . I cut about 3/4ths-1" wide strips up as high as the corner 4"-5" and start tying.....doing a few on each side and the corners to help hold it in place. After you are done cutting and tying all the way around--you can go back and trim your ties if you want to....making them shorter for dogs or making a pretty notched end like you would see on the end of a piece of ribbon.

Hope this helps! These are fun to do! And the fleece is a treat to shop for! There are so many different cute prints!
