Fighter Pilot Blanket

This blanket was a no brainer. My four year old son has an obsession with fighter pilots. He loves watching planes fly and says he wants to fly planes when he “gets growed.” Naturally, that led me to making this blanket. He’s watched the progress of this blanket from day 1, anticipating its finish with every row that flew of my hook and now that it’s finished he’s a very happy camper…or should I say future pilot!
