Knot an ordinary blanket.

So I got this gift for my daughter for Christmas. She was all about this gift, using pieces for her dolls beds and pillows. Time and time I told her that if she kept using the pieces, she wouldn’t have enough for a blanket. “I won’t lose any momma!” She says with confidence. 

Fast forward to last week when she pulls it out asking me to help her make this blanket. So I sit down and request the color of her choice. Now each side of these felt squares have 12 knots to be tied. I decided that the best way to make this good from both sides would be to tie a knot then flip the blanket over and tie the next one. This would ensure six knots shown on each side of the blanket for each edge of the square. This is working out beautifully I think. 

I am starting to get into the groove of the knot tying when I shortly realize this is going to be a fairly small blanket. I ask her if she can find any more pieces and she shrugs her shoulders assuring me that I have all the pieces.  

 This is my 3 year old daughter, at least she will be in 2 days, and as you can see, we do not have all the pieces. This blanket was supposed to be for my eight year old. So, the solution I think is to either buy more felt or figure out a good border. 

This is where I need your help. What solutions do you have to finish this blanket off? Let me know in the comments below!
