The kit includes everything you need to make a one size fits all unicorn hoodie blanket. (If you can’t find it at Amazon, you can also try Wal-Mart,.)Use the step by step instructions, which show a picture for each of the 102 steps, to get to work. Although the number of steps seems daunting, they go quickly. It requires minimal sewing, and the majority of the project involves tying pieces of fabric in knots.
Kids will need either an adult to read the instructions or good reading and counting skills and the ability to follow the instructions in order without missing any steps. Kids get to try out basic sewing skills to assemble the horn and ears and provide the final touches on the unicorn.

She’s enjoyed crafting her very own unicorn clothing over the course of several sessions, and it makes for a great activity on long winter days when cold weather and early sunsets keep us inside.
