Another way to save money when shopping for fabric for ties is to shop in bulk. This way you can get a large number of blankets for less money. Plus, you'll get to shop around at the store to see what type of fabric they offer. You may even be able to see different types of ties as well. The store may have ties that you can wear with your blanket. If you're not able to see these, you'll have to settle for the blanket itself, since that's what most people usually settle on. Shopping around is a great way to ensure that you get the best deal and quality.
