Blanket Collage copy Get out your fabric, we’re crafting for a great cause today and I’m sharing how to make an easy, no sew, fleece tie blanket. Have you heard of Project Linus? This organization collects blankets and distributes them to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug. Having children who are very attached to their own special blankets, this organization is near and dear to my heart. I’ve also seen first hand, while working in the social work field, how blankets can provide so much comfort to a child going through crisis. When Kim of A Girl and A Girl Gun emailed me about Luke’s Love, an annual blanket drive started by a mother who lost her sweet boy, I couldn’t wait to participate! The blankets received from the drive are donated to Project Linus. Last year they collected over 200 blankets and I think we can top that this year! Get your kiddos involved, this is a great way to give back to the community and pay it forward during the holiday season! The best part about Project Linus? The blankets are all handmade. There’s just something special about a handmade blanket and knowing that someone took the time to think of you. Get out that fabric, my crafty friends, and let’s get blanket making! If you do not have the time or ability to hand craft a blanket, perhaps you would consider a monetary donation. You can find a local chapter to drop your blankets off at or mail them here:
