Everyone gets cold sometimes, and any best friend will love a personalized quilt to keep them warm. For this birthday gift idea you will need fleece, a ruler, chalk, and scissors. Start by choosing fleece fabric in colors or patterns that you know your best friend will like.
Then cut the fabric into several large squares. You can use as many types of fleece as you would like. Then use the ruler and chalk to measure an inch in from all sides of each square creating a smaller square in the center. Cut in towards the center of the square all the way around, but leave the corners alone.
Then place two squares next to each other so the fringe overlaps. Tie the fringe together into a knot. Complete all the way down the side. Add more squares in the same manner until your patchwork quilt is the right length and width for your best friend.
