Personalising a fleece blanket not only gives you a fun craft project to complete but it also provides you with a nifty gift idea for any occasion. A fleece blanket can be personalised in a variety of ways, whether you like intricate designs or simplicity. Using minimal materials, you can make a personalised fleece blanket as a cost-friendly alternative to an expensive commercially customised gift or home essential item.
Spread the fleece blanket out in front of you evenly and make sure there are no wrinkles in it. Choose a colour of fleece that will show up with fabric paint and embellishments.
Select a stencil of a font you like for creating the person's name to customise the blanket. Alternatively you can freehand the design with fabric paints that come with precision tips.
Fill in the stencil with the paint colour of your choice by squeezing the fabric paint into the opening of the stencil. Do this for each letter until you have completed the custom name. Let the painted blanket dry for 20 minutes.
Embellish the personalised blanket by adding stencilled designs of things the blanket's recipient enjoys. For example, if you are creating a personalised blanket for a little girl who likes princesses, a pink blanket with stencilled flowers, hearts and stars is adequate. Use your imagination with this endeavour.
