Blankets, quilts, afghans, throws, and baby blankets are some of my favorite handmade projects to gift! There’s nothing quite like wrapping yourself up in a handmade hug. There are so many different ways how to make a blanket and I’ve included some of my recent favorites in this collection. Blankets can add a decorative touch to the recipient’s home while also keeping them warm through the winter.
