As we near the holidays, we think about those who are less fortunate. This is the time when you can give and use your talent of sewing. Think about giving a lap blanket to someone in the nursing homes or hospitals. A lot of these people do not have loved ones around or may not even have a loved one and remembering them during this time is especially thoughtful. Making a lap blanket does not have to be time consuming. You could make a cuddle minky blanket, a fleece tied blanket, a minky blanket or a fleece and terry chenille blanket. All these blankets have been done as projects on our blog.
Children would love to receive a lap blanket as well. Consider checking with organizations to see if there is a child in need of a warm blanket. All would be great to give a child.
