15 Ways to Embellish a Fleece Blanket

If you’re looking for new ways to add a little pizzazz to a plain or printed fleece blanket, then you’ve come to the right place! These 26 blankets were all embellished in some way to make them truly unique.

For the solid-colored blankets, we used characters from coloring pages as a simple pattern to cut out pieces of fleece to form layers of the design then zigzag-stitched the pieces together and then zigzag-stitched them onto the blanket.

On some of the blankets with printed designs, we either zigzag-stitched or hand-stitched with metallic thread around the design to make it “pop” out.

Several blankets have 3-D accents such as tassels (elephant tails), pompoms (lion’s tail), buttons (duck eyes), bows (balloon bouquet) and sequins.

For blankets with busy patterns, we sometimes added (using zigzag stitch) a coordinating color of fleece as a border then attached cute trims and rickrack. Other times we simply stitched around the blanket’s edge using a decorative stitch, blanket stitch or simple straight stitch.

Thinking “outside-the-box” on several blankets resulted in adorable designs and techniques that we’ll continue to use on future blankets! The Cars & Trucks blanket features a road-like dashed line around the border which was achieved by cutting slits in the blue area and weaving white ribbon in and out. The Alphabet Stamp blanket and Polka Dot blanket both feature a cute wavy border that was cut along two sides. The Rainbow blanket not only has a fleece rainbow and sun sewn on it, but also features multicolored yarn fringe tassels along each corner.

We hope these techniques inspire you to turn your mass-production fleece blankets into a one-of-a-kind blankets that someone you know will treasure!

Adventures of Beasley

AAA 500 Race

ItsMadeCreatively’s bear-y cute mascot, Beasley, was once again seen at Texas Motor Speedway for a weekend of NASCAR fun! The adventure kicked off on Thursday evening when Beasley arrived to see the Parade of Haulers pass by right in front of where she was sitting. Amid all of the train-sounding honks from the trucks, Beasley posed for a quick photo with Joey Logano’s hauler as it passed by. On Friday, Beasley toured the Fan Zone just outside the track, gathering all sorts of great prizes and then watched the Monster Energy cars run qualifying laps around the track. Afterwards, she stayed to watch the Camping World Trucks run the JAG Metals 350! Finally on Sunday, Beasley attended the AAA Texas 500 and got to watch all of her favorite Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series drivers zoom around the track!  It was a hot afternoon, but Beasley stayed cool with her Racing Fans made by ItsMadeCreatively! All in all, it was an amazing weekend!

O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Race

This weekend, Beasley went on a grand adventure to Texas Motor Speedway to watch the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 race! With windchills in the low 40s, she brought along her new handmade coat to stay warm while exploring the many speedway sights. First, was a photo on the Texas Motor Speedway sign, just outside of Gate 6. After spinning countless prize wheels and winning all kinds of free goodies from the sponsor booths that lined the outside of the speedway, Beasley posed for a photo in front of the merchandise trailer for the Penske drivers! Drivers were signing autographs, answering questions from fans but the best part of all was when Beasley got to sit on Joey Logano’s AAA race car!

Although much warmer weather was expected, Beasley still brought along her ItsMadeCreatively “Cool” Racing Fans! If you missed the blog post that announced these innovative paper fans, check it out here. These three cleverly-designed  paper fans let fellow race spectators know that not only are you cool (i.e. awesome) but when using these fans, you’re also much cooler (I.e. temperature ) than they are! Assembly instructions are included. All you’ll need is card stock paper, scissors and large self-adhesive tip craft sticks. We recommend laminating the fan for added durability before attaching to the craft stick.
