Welcome Card for Nelly

Welcome Card for Nelly

Hi Loves!  The title of this weeks post is paying homage to The Beatles and their many words of wisdom.  This time of year brings to mind all of our loves…Significant others, family, and pets.  Recently a dear friend of mine told me all about an animal rescue she is involved with and how they were going down to a Kentucky shelter and bringing back a transport full of pups that were in desperate need of some TLC and hopefully find their forever homes.  There was one poor female pup that had not been spoken for and was scheduled to be euthanized at the Kentucky shelter before the end of the month.  She had such sad soulful eyes, as if she knew her fate.  Needless to say my friend could not just sit by without sponsoring this loving little gal, so she made sure Nelly got a spot on the transport.  My family has rescued pups before and I know they like to have an object of comfort or security so I headed off to my craft room to make a blanket for Nelly.  Oh and of course I made a card to welcome her home 🙂

I took a five foot length of fleece, I cut it in half lengthwise (it was 54″ wide, so each piece was 60″ x 27″.  Next you line the two pieces up with wrong ends facing in.  Then you cut a 4″ square out of each corner and cut 1″ wide slits, 4″ deep, all the way around the blanket.

Then you tie each pair of slits together in a double knot.  Do not make the knots too tight or it will pucker the blanket.
