Stay cozy on chilly winter days with this DIY wool Swiss Army blanket tutorial from Heidi at Hands Occupied!

Today’s project is a toasty wool blanket – perfect for the uber cold weather we’ve been having in Chicago. This blanket is definitely stylish, but its real beauty lies in a few factors: 1) It’s easy to make. 2) You can do most of this project with the blanket on your lap, keeping you warm. 3) This is a DIY that will run you around $30, and the authentic blankets that inspired this project cost up to $300, depending on where you get them.
