My version of the weighted blanket

I finished the blanket!!!!
... this is the back of the blanket... I used a denim material that had some Lycra in it-- so that it would be durable but also flexible~

This is the top of the finished blanket... Shane Loves to compete, and NASCAR is a great topic---so when I saw this checkered flag material at WALmart... I was VERY happy--- it also made sewing the columns for the poly beads easy...
The poly beads I found at Joann's they were $6.99 I think... I used three bags--


This is Shane last night, he said "Mom, some see how much I love you.... " He put his sisters' blue boa/scarf on the blanket in the shape of a heart!
awwwwwwwwwwwwwww .... It's nice when he shows me love like this-- it doesn't happen very often but when it does.. I get all emotional! :)

Later today the kids and I have to go to school for a meeting with the IEP team... we are going to see if our collective minds can create some new ideas to keep Shane on track!

I need to get on making my son a blanket. He does so much better when he has it. The one he has now isn't heavy enough for him anymore. Did you use a pattern? You must email it to me if you did!! I'm more than willing to sew one - it'll save me boatloads of cash! great work on the blanket - it's awesome!
