Our 1-year anniversary was coming up and I wanted to do something crafty.
First, I bought black and red fleece, his favorite colors. Then I gathered about 14 pictures of us, our friends, homecoming, his favorite people, and stupid moments. I printed each one on a separate piece of iron-on printer paper.
Next I ironed the photos onto plain white fabric and scattered them about the red fleece. I sewed the pictures onto the fleece, and finally I cut and tied the ends of the red and black fleece together to complete the blanket. It took me a full week to complete the blanket, but it was well worth it.
He sleeps with it every night as a daily reminder of my love and still a year later tells me how much he likes it.
