I posted last time that I was going to attempt to make a weighted blanket for Drew for Christmas. I bought two flat sheets, sewed them together inside out and turned them right side in. I laid it out on the toyroom floor and called upon Eric for help making my lines for the squares.
Eric ended up using his laser level to make the lines straight. We made ten vertical lines and fifteen horizontal ones. That was one hundred and fifty squares to fill with weight.
I had ten pounds of poly pellets to spread out among the pockets. Eric calculated how much I needed for each one. I sewed the vertical lines, making channels. Then I poured the poly pellets in each channel and fed a handful of poly-fill to the bottom. When I had all ten done, I sealed it off by sewing horizontally.
