Recently Momma Cat's Big Brother Cat celebrated his birthday.  So Momma Cat made him a Seattle Seahawks blanket (woobie) for his birthday, then she mailed it to him.  

A couple of days later he called to tell her how much he liked it!  This is what it looked like.
Everybody needs their own Seahawks woobie!

Even more recently Momma Cat's Brother-in-law Cat had triple bypass heart surgery!  So again, Momma Cat thought, what can I make for him that might make him feel better?  He loves the Seahawks too, so Momma Cat made him his own Seahawks woobie and is shipping it off to Hawaii on Monday when the Post Office is open again. 

Making a blanket (woobie) is easy.  You just buy 2 1/2 yards of your favorite fleece, cut off both the selvage edges, then turn under a 1/4 inch all the way around (you can do this as you're sewing) and baste.  Then turn under another 1/4 inch all the way around and stitch.  You will have a nice sized light weight blanket to use on those chilly fall and winter days while you're watching the game, or reading a book, or whatever you like to do.  

A lot of people buy the no-sew fleece throw kits because they don't like to sew.  They're nice because then you get a double layer blanket.  I make my woobies my way because they're lighter, and you can always double-up if you need more warmth.  Us cats always tend to be a little hot-blooded!

GO SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!!!
