Over the weekend while I was at my local craft store, I came across the clearance fabric table. And there on the top was this beauty:
Yes, that is right, Pink Virginia Tech Fleece on the sale rack (living in Tennessee does has its perks). I of course snatched a yard and a half up for $5 (usually $19.99 a yard). Hey-o savings!
Instead of spending money on another piece of fleece, I wanted something classy and inexpensive. So I brought it home and looked at my spare fabric, nothing matched. But then I remembered a table cloth that had a stain in the middle of it that I never use. That is what became the back. Here are the steps that I took to make this amazing throw:
1. Place table cloth on fleece and cut to desired size (the table cloth was an oval - so I made the throw have rounded edges).
2. Then cut out in a contract fabric and apply interfacing. Trace Pattern.
3. Then sew on the the pattern and cut away fabric (using same method I used for the shirt in this post).

4. Sew fabric and fleece together along edges, leaving 5in open at bottom to turn inside-out.
5. Turn inside out. Slip stitch the opening closed. AND DONE!
And it is perfect for watching the game on cold days or just using it while reading. Its great!
