Fleece Throws ~ It's What's for Christmas!

You know, it's always tough to figure out what Christmas gifts to get for that person who already has "everything."  We are often in that position with my aunt and uncle.  But hey, who couldn't use a fleece throw?  My mom's brainstorm.

My aunt and uncle live outside of Phoenix.  Being warm is not too much of issue most of the year.  And their house wasn't built with being warm as a concern.  They heat primarily with their fireplace.  Yet, the desert does get chilly this time of year. 

Their house is decorated in an eclectic southwest style ~ part Native American, part Hispanic, and part cowboy.  We tried to get fleece that would jibe with the decor.

For my uncle, I made the cowboy themed throw you see below:

For my aunt, my mom made the southwest themed throw.
We are very pleased with how they turned out ~ and how quickly they went together.  Now, I hope they enjoy them as much as we enjoyed making them.


  1. They look SO comfy! I could use one of those on my lap right now. Fun colors and patterns too. I'm sure they'll be happy to get them!

  2. I've seen these done before and always wanted to make one. I think they look brilliant. I love those patterns. Fleece here doesn't look as wonderful as that (unless I'm not really looking properly)

    They look awesome and I'm sure they'll be loved and well used.

  3. What a great idea! I love fleece throws - warm, but not heavy - and so pretty!!

  4. Those are great! I've made those before and they're very well received - they are SO cozy!

  5. There are a few people on my list that are hard to get gifts for, namely my parents, so I can relate.

    Those throws look so soft and comfy. I love the fabrics you picked. I hope your aunt and uncle love them, because they are beautiful!

  6. We don't swap Christmas gifts with family members - one pain less! :) These are great gifts and I'm sure they will love it! Both of them look great and I love the vibrant colors of the southwest themed throw!
