Fleece & Panne Throw Blankets on my living room chair.

After almost a two week marathon of cutting, pinning and sewing, my best blanket is finally on sale! Ivory Polar Fleece on one side, soft and silky panne on the other side.

Here's how I make a fleece and panne (or flannel) blanket.
(If you are not interested in reading just scroll past to the PANNE BLANKET SALE.)

Most of you know that I don't have a usable sewing room at the moment, so my massage table does double-duty as a cutting surface. I place a 4'x6' very smooth piece of very thin, luan plywood (often used in making doll houses) on top of my massage table. The nice thing about this wood is that even though it's large, its quite lightweight and easy to handle. With pencil, I've marked grid lines on each end of the wood.

Here you can see where my large roll of fleece is on the floor and stretched up over the wood. A color of panne is on top of the fleece and my long cutting ruler tool is on top, with weights ready for my rotary cutter.

Below you can see where both sides of the blanket-to-be have been cut and it's been pinned all the way around the edges.

Then I begin the first of three sews around the blanket. The pins have to be removed as I move forward.

The next sew is using my serger (overlock) machine around the edges.

The next step is turning the blanket right side out through a 6" opening at one end.

The final step is the last sew around the entire edge of blanket to give the edge a nice finish and to seal up the opening used to turn the blanket right side out.


This blanket is my most popular and luxurious blanket. Comfy anti-pill polar fleece on one side, silky soft panne on the other. This sale is effective through December 31st, 2009.
