Soldiers’ Angels No Sew Blanket Drive

Posted on Oct 29, 2015 by  | Comments (4)


As we approach winter and the days get colder, we’ve been getting a lot of requests from our Veterans for blankets to keep warm. We decided what better time than now to do a No Sew Blanket Drive!

 

What’s a “No-Sew” Blanket?

Our amazing Sewing and Crafting Team has been making “No-Sew” Blankets for our service members for years. It’s an easy way to say “Thank You” and show we care. No Sew blankets are made of fleece and require NO SEWING! They are an easy craft project with a huge impact.

 

How do I participate?

We will be starting our No Sew Blanket Drive on Thursday, October 29th and will run all winter long. All you have to do is download the instructions, make as many blankets as you’d like, and email Renee at (rcheatham@soldiersangels.org) for shipping instructions. Want to add a special touch? Roll the blanket up, tie a ribbon around the blanket and attach a message!

The blankets will be distributed to patients at VA hospitals throughout the country.

 

Blanket Specifics

We are looking for twin bed sized as well as wheelchair sized blankets (30x42) - but we need more of the twin bed sized.

Ready, set, no sew! This is a great way to show appreciation to our heroes. We can’t wait to see all of the gorgeous blankets you create!

    Right now Wal-mart is selling 50" x 60" throws for $2.88. That's a less expensive than a yard of fleece in the fabric dept. There are plaids, prints (even camouflage) and solid colors. Perfect for these blankets. They are washable, made of 100% polyester. Couldn't be warmer. A double layer would certainly be comfortable. I've used mine for the past two winters and as soon as I cover with mine, I'm so comfy I'm out like a light and don't see much TV.

    I took Beverly's advice. I went to Walmart and bought 10 throw blankets. You can't beat $2.88/blanket. I couldn't by the material for less than that price. I'm in the process of writing messages for each blanket before I send them.

    With the Walmart blankets what did you do about the stitches on the edges?
