This blanket was a special request from a customer who is a huge fan of Jimmie Johnson, Nascar driver.
This is by far the largest blanket I've made yet...it was requested to be this large.
I had a hard time finding Jimmie Johnson fabric, so what I was able to get on eBay wasn't enough to make a full blanket, let alone a blanket so large, so I had to fill in with fabric of matching blue and yellow. It turned out pretty good, considering what I had to work with!
March is National Craft Month! Over 10 years ago, the Craft & Hobby Association initiated National Craft Month as a way to introduce consumers to the popular pastime of crafting. During National Craft Month, consumers get the opportunity to take a look at new and exciting craft products at their favorite participating craft retail stores.
During the month of March, craft retail stores will offer consumers of all skill levels and ages the opportunity to participate in "make-it/take it’s," special classes, demonstrations, tips and projects, and will offer free National Craft Month project sheets, the chance to partake in raffles or contests, and more! This is a perfect chance to get the family together to spend some quality time while reuniting with a fun pastime. Crafting is a great and easy way to lower stress, learn, build self-esteem and simply have fun!
National Craft Month is the best time to check out what’s going on in the world of crafting. Simply contact your local craft retail store to find out what they are doing to celebrate!
