Pillow Pet Blanket

My son's latest collection is of Pillow Pets.  He loves anything that has to do with animals and so I got him the puppy pillow pet at Target in Montana in November as I had not seen them in Canada yet.  He then asked Santa for the dolphin one for Christmas and a last minute add on of the horse on Christmas Eve! Thanks to the Pillow Pet kiosk at Market Mall in Calgary,  Santa came through and Christmas morning there were the dolphin and horse under the tree.  He was so excited!!  I had to go to Fabricland to get velcro for my Galaxy Pad case as none of the quilt stores had any, and while we were there he found a plethora of pillow pet fabric on sale (of course with a membership - which in this case was cheaper to add on the price of the membership and get the stuff).  One of the items we got was this polar fleece panel, which has the image clearly marked through on both sides, so he did not want a backing on it.  So, a true red eye craft, lay panel on floor at midnight, cut around panel very carefully, put in dryer on hot setting to collect all loose bits.  Put on child's bed and await big smile in the morning.   Hope this inspires your own creativity...
