I'm a blanket person, hot or cold, rain or shine. Given Colorado summers this trait can be a little tricky, but the Baja Blanket Plaid, in it's 100% cotton goodness, is just the match! It's hard to think of warmer weather given our current state. but this material made the exception in my crafting plans.

The project was a breeze and the perfect road trip companion. I sat in the passenger seat pulling thread after thread while taking in the scenery, appreciative of something mindless to keep my hands busy. Later, once I had unraveled 4" on either side, I sat down with a TV show to tie the tassels. To do so I sectioned each color check in half and tied an overhand knot, taking care to scooch it up all the way to the weave. I gave it a light wash and tumble dry, but afterwards found that all the tassels had tangled. This was quickly remedied with a large tooth comb.

The blanket as a whole didn't take long and is something I'm keeping in my pocket in case of any last minute craft-mergencies. While it could pass as something found at a home goods store, the value and quality of making it yourself can't be beat. Plus, during this time of year, can't we all benefit to sit and unravel some fabric?
