I am doing well with these blankets and the best thing is that the pets are very happy. Easy to care for and washable lasts for long time. Then with the scraps of fleece, I just tie them together to make a rope. These puppies LOVE to play tug a war. They too last forever and are washable. So here your pet is one happy dude.

Your idea is great. Can you tell me the sizes you make and do you double the material. I will be making one for my dog when I get one and know a few friends with dogs.
There is a company called Mutt Matts that makes similar products. Just be sure that if you sell these, that you don't infringe on their copyright.
Oh, my doggie also just loves fleece. Once I scammed on to that, away went the expensive beds. He now sleeps in an old soft-sided suitcase that I was going to throw out because the zipper broke which is lined with a fleece blanket and Cookie Bear is in Heaven! Good idea to sell them.
Our chapter of Project Linus did a meeting on using up scraps of fleece from the blankets we make for children in hospitals, etc. We made blankets with the scraps and donated to the local animal shelter who was very happy to receive them.

If you make the no sew fleece blankets, don't throw away the squares you cut out from the corners! I gather them up and sew them together to make pet blankets for the local shelter. They wash nicely and need not be perfect.
Good for you! What a great thing for you to do. (09/29/2004)
