A New Throw for Locke
fleece throw made by me, but some time ago he gave it a "haircut." He wanted one end of his old throw open, so that he could climb inside while it was on his bed, making it into a sleeping bag. When he showed me last visit what he had done, he said, "Now the end is all crooked! I want it straight!" I told him that I thought it was time he had another throw, with fleece that was for a big boy, not the babyish print he had on his old throw, and that I would deliberately leave one end open. This time I used my Dear Jane 5" square ruler, marked the 1 1/2" line with tape, and cut the fringe 1 1/2" wide and 5" long. These are wider strips than I did before, but hopefully these won't tear off as readily as the narrower ones I used for all 4 of the grandkids' throws, made several years ago. So here are views of both sides of Locke's new throw. He'll be surprised and delighted, I'm sure, with the more grown-up look. And, yes, one end was left open!
