while i do like the minimalist non-fussy look of ikea items, there are times when a girl needs some frills. this simple but sweet embellishment of the polarvide blanket by jennifer w of the felt mouse does just that.
nothing over the top but enough to make your mass-produced ikea item so much more personal and homely.
a clever bit of advice from jennifer: "drag a new ribbon through the holes by pinning it to the first ribbon you wove through. in this way you can change your look in seconds without having to weave through all of the holes again!" link.
