I have found small polar fleece blankets in Marshalls, have seen them in Walgreens too. Mine is slightly heavier then the airlines. What I am going to do before I fly again, is go the the fabric store, and buy some yardage...then you cut the ends like fringe, and tie them in a knot...tooo cute>>also in the stores,these are very inexpensve, in this size...

The best fund raiser our kids marching band ever did was selling fleece blankets that are about the size you're talking about....the only bad thing about them is they're bright orange! But ya gotta love the Indian Brave head on the end. I loved this fund raiser because it was a non perishable, non caloric item!
Angela Z. , who still has a few if PapaBill wants to be a Boone Brave supporter!
thank-you Donna! you beat me to it!
Fleece blankets are made right here in Massachusetts. The outlet is Berkshire Blanket, i belive that they have a web site, same as the name. They are better than the ones you get at WalMart and the same thing that you buy from Lands End or LL Bean, at a much cheaper price.
Thinking about those little blankets and pillows on planes makes me think of the 'bed bug' problems thread or in this case the head lice potential problem.
I know...they can be just sitting on the headrest in the plane waiting for the next passenger to sit down and put their head back!!
I think buying your own little light fleece blanket is a great idea PapaBear.
I bought a couple of fleece throw at Old Navy store when they had the $5 special. Besides being a throw, they make great toddler blankets.
My mother in law just got back from an Alaskan cruise. I think she is hooked.
hey, I made 38 fleece "tied in knots" blankets for Christmas...now, Im making personalized ones with my embroidery machine... anyone interested ? I can do solid color of choice with your name & perhaps a design... maybe a plane, a car, a motorcycle, ship, anchor, palm tree, frozen thingy, limitless possibilities... I am not FREE but Im affordable... lol Let me know... can get these out in no time !!
Heres an idea, I can make enough blankies to pay for a cruise... uh, not ! I think I will be making blankies til Y3K (year 3000) and not have made enough... oh well... nice to dream !
I have to be Grinch guy. There are rules about selling stuff on the boards. It starts out small but it can get out of hand so even if it's for a good cause, and a cruise qualifies for that, we can't allow it.
