Make a Fleece Blanket

This activity is not only fun and good exercise for stiff fingers, at the end you have a blanket to keep or give away!  Nursing homes, children’s hospitals, and homeless shelters are always looking for cheerful ways to keep people warm, so if you find a good deal on fabric, why not make a few to donate? 

Here are two great websites on how to make a fleece blanket.

This one is simply photos, but very effective at getting the point across

This one included printed step-by-step written directions, as well as a list of supplies.

 This project may need to be modified for someone in the moderate stages of the disease, for example, you may need to prep the blanket so all that needs to be done is tie the two pieces together.
