Handmade Christmas Gift Ideas - No Sew Reversible Blanket

Some of you might be tempted to try this from just the photo, but I urge you to read the tutorial. Time is short now - Christmas is almost upon us. You don't want to waste time on mistakes when the tute gives such specific instructions.

This is part of our series (9/21-12/24) of handmade Christmas gift ideas. The tutorial was posted at the BohemianRevolution, at this link.

It would be so easy to whip up a few of these in time for gift giving. Size is of no concern. You could make one for anyone from a toddler (nap time) to a senior (lap cover) on your list.

I love that they use two pieces of fabric joined, making it doubly thick, and reversible as well. This is sure to please and surprise anyone on your list.

No matter how many afghans and blankies are in a household, each of us always wants our own. Having someone give us one for Christmas, in colors or prints that are specially chosen, is a real treat.

For other projects in my series, just look along the right sidebar for the label "Christmas Gift Projects." I hope to post only tips that do not require knitting, crocheting, machine sewing, tatting, embroidery, or any other skilled technique.

If you are feeling too crushed for time to make your own gifts this season, check my Etsy shop for items for your gift list.
