The standard size for kid's fleece blankets is 50" x 60". Using this size blanket now, when you're laying on the couch, is pointless. The blanket is either up at your neck and then your feet are freezing or your feet are covered and then your arms are cold!!
Here's a quick fix...sew 2 together. 2 into 1
Put 2 blankets together, match the edges and sew one straight stitch. I sewed along the 60 inch side (on the right in this picture).
The finished size is now 60" x 100".
My husband is 6' 3' tall, so this is perfect to cover him up completely.
I know the color combo is crazy and not "cute", but we're not going for looks...we need warmth!! They were just stored away and not being used, so this is perfect!!
If you really want to make it look like it was done intentionally, maybe you could cut each blanket in half and then sew the four parts together in alternating strips.
Always good to find a new use for something and free is always great too!!
Have a great day,
