He loves it!
He was grabbing for it as soon as I walked in the living room.
I couldn’t wait 3 more weeks to give it to him on his birthday.
I gave it to him the day after I finished it.
I left a crochet piece border.
I also sewed all the up and downs and side to sides so that the fleece would not be sliding all around.
It gave it a nice quilted look and feel.
I was not to sure about how the finished product would look.
I don’t have the best sewing skills.
I am happy to say that I am quite proud of how well it turned out. 🙂
